The focus of this class is to explore an age-old fibers medium. Weaving has been present in our world for thousands of years and today you will learn how to use a table top loom. Jill will start the loom for you. She takes great care in warping the loom to prepare each student to learn the basic weaving process. You will all explore basic weft techniques that create beautiful patterns, in turn finishing your own piece of contemporary looking art to hang on the wall. Creating these abstract pieces of art will help you get comfortable with the loom and its process. All the vocabulary and techniques will be further explained as you move through the class.
