This workshop will introduce you to one of the earliest forms of weaving, backstrap weaving. You will learn how to set up your own backstrap loom to create and weave unique pieces of art that can be made anywhere.
In this workshop, we will explore setting up a backstrap loom from start to finish using a string-heddle method and a plain weave structure. You will have naturally dyed hemp and wool yarns/fibers available to weave with. Different weft applications will be introduced for experimentation. You will leave the workshop knowing how to set up a backstrap loom of your own and will leave with a unique piece of art. At the end of class, you will have the option of purchasing your loom or making your own!
