Weaving is one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world.  Today’s woven wall hangings are a mixture of ancient craft techniques with modern designs.  In this 3 hour weaving workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of weaving, how to use a loom along with the weaving tools.  Together we will complete a beautiful tapestry you can then hang in your home. After completing this workshop, you will be able to create your own unique pieces as you experiment with different materials, yarns, patterns and textures.
