Learn the ways of weaving in the round as you make your own unique circular tapestry in this beginner level class. This is a really popular approach due to the simple tools needed and the flexibility and freedom to just go with the flow!

We’ll begin by discussing the similarities and differences to weaving on a straight loom while we wind the warp on our 10" wooden hoop frame to create the foundation.

Next we'll explore circle weaving with a focus on fibers and techniques that create dimension and texture. We'll wrap up by reviewing a variety of finishing options.

You’ll take home your finished piece on the frame ready to hang, and the inspiration and know-how to continue on your weaving journey!

All supplies and equipment are included.
