This class is an opportunity for busy people to completely immerse themselves in weaving for three days. It's a great kick-off to joining the ongoing weaving classes at the Visual Arts Center, or to begin a personal journey of weaving at home on one's own equipment. Students will have choices of fibers, yarns and projects to choose from. Project recommendations will be made by the instructor to assist each individual to accomplish their own goals in the allotted time. The entire process of weaving on the floor loom is covered. Students learn how to plan the project, measure the yarn, dress the floor loom, weave off the project, and what the appropriate finishing techniques are for their project. The class is inspiring, motivating, challenging, fulfilling and peaceful.
