Step into an ancient lineage and find the grounding and grace that comes from weaving threads into cloth. A beginning weaving class where students will learn all aspects of how to approach a floor loom: warping, dressing and weaving the beauty herself. Through harnessing our tender attention on the complexly simple, repeatable task of weaving mere threads in cloth – we encounter our radical agency as creators, story-keepers, time teller, and find new ways of being ourselves as a force of quiet change on the planet.
This is the third class in a three part choose your own adventure in farm to finish textiles. Feel free to take one, two, or all three consecutive classes!
THIS CLASS IS FULL! THERE ARE STILL SOME SPOTS IN THE DYEING CLASS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!
