Learn to weave using expressive marks and unusual materials in this slow-paced 6-week setting. We will cover weaving basics including how to warp a loom, pile weave, rya knots, finishing techniques, and considerations for buying or making a loom. The longer time frame gives students the chance to finish multiple tapestries and experiment with various repurposed materials over the course of the workshop. A small pop out loom will be provided. If students want to move to a bigger loom, there will be discussion about making and or purchasing a large a loom during the course of the class. Yarn and fabric straps will be provided. Students are welcome to bring their own yarn, found objects, fabric, or other materials to weave with. Also offered as a one-day workshop.
TUITION: $200 + FEES: $45
Hannah Adams is currently an MFA candidate at Maine College of Art, with an anticipated graduation in May 2019. She learned to weave after completing her undergraduate degree. As a broke underemployed 20-something she feel in love with weaving for its hands on approach, accessible materials, and healing properties of the repetitive nature of the craft.
