Wed, Mar 28th 2018 - Beginner Frame Loom Weaving Class: HangingFood and drink
28 March 18:00 - 21:00
Aberdeen! I'm happy to announce my return to the Granite City for a "Beginners Weaving Workshop - Textures" at The Cult of Coffee. Why not join us for an evening with like-minded individuals, bring a friend, co-worker and come learn a new skill!
Woven wall hangings are making a major comeback in the last few years as an alternative to traditional framed wall art. With simple easy-to-use tools and instructions, join Le Petit Moose and learn how to make your own handwoven wall hanging. It's a great way to spend some time working with beautiful fibres, being creative and indulging in the meditative art of weaving.
During the course of the workshop, you'll learn how to warp your loom, weave, creating TEXTURE, adding fringe and finishing techniques. This class is ideal for beginners as no prior weaving experience is needed. All materials and yarns will be provided, although if you do catch the weaving bug and would like to explore this craft further, there will be an opportunity to purchase a Le Petit Moose frame loom weaving kit after the class.
Yummy cakes and coffees will be available to purchase on site.
