Please join us with returning weaving instructor Susan Perrine as she guides you through the creation of a Mobius/Infinity Scarf.
Get ready to create a one of a kind woven accessory. Learn about the Tabby, Herringbone, Twill or Goose Eye patterns as you design your own woven project. You’ll have access to all sorts of warping and weaving equipment including one of the looms made available in the studio.
We will have our meet and greet and begin our project by choosing yarns of different weights and colors from Artsworth’s lavish supply. After you choose your warping material, the important lesson of warping the loom will start us on the right path.
Get into the zone of creativity as patterns are created and the weft fiber is woven into the warp to create your very own fabric.
On Saturday lunch snacks will be provided in the form of a hearty soup (vegetarian), sliced baked bread, local cheese etc. Feel free to bring something to share, or an item for yourself if you have dietary restrictions.
Students will resume their projects with a mind to finish them by the end of the day. Susan will demonstrate cutting the fabric from the loom, finishing the ends and if you like fashioning the fabric into the mobius shape.
