Learn to Weave!
Weaving is an ancient craft; it shelters and clothes as well as adorns our spaces, adding texture, color, design and inspiration to our lives. But it is the actual process of weaving that has caught the attention of so many as we’ve stepped into this new century. The practice of selecting fibers + natural objects; warping a loom; guiding weft through the vertical foundation; creating pattern/texture as the process unfolds…. These steps continue to connect us with the past, and more importantly, with ourselves.
Join in this weaving workshop as we weave intuitively and work together in a space of creativity and openness. Instructor Jeanine Ertl will provide guidance in a variety of Weaving Techniques and will surround you with warped looms to work on, tools to learn with, natural fibers, and foraged and gathered natural objects to incorporate into your weavings. Feel free to bring your own items to weave into your piece, especially if there are any fibers/yarns, stones/crystals, shells, leaves/grasses, etc. that you’d like to experiment with.
Each weaver will complete a one-of-a-kind woven textile. We’ll have rods on hand for those who would like to adapt their pieces into wall hangings. And, if you find that you’re in love with the practice, you’ll have an option to purchase the loom you are working with, as well as additional fiber and tools to continue at home. We’ll have tea and water on-hand, as we explore mindfully making in a space of creativity & harmony with others.
This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting to unlock their creativity for an afternoon of hands-on fiber fun, creating in a grounding space while making a one-of-a-kind, take-home woven piece.
