The Art of Weaving Workshop brings the ancient art of weaving to life as we explore the history of fabrics, the art of design through weaving, and the possibilities for their own creations. Discover weaving throughout world cultures, see how weaving opens up your artistic , creative side – you will work with color, design and imagination. Each student will use a small hand loom to weave their own tapestry, which can be used as a wall hanging, small carry bag, or doll house rug. They can take home their unique creations as well as the small loom so that they can continue to weave.
