Have you been intrigued by the idea of weaving but were intimidated by the formidable mechanics of the floor loom? Me too! Freeform tapestry weaving is an expressive, process-oriented way to explore traditional handweaving techniques to create a piece that is personal and unique. A tabletop loom enables us to incorporate a wealth of textures such as fluffy roving, long fleece locks, silk ribbon, cotton punis, and handspun art yarn. We'll learn how to set up the loom and plan a design. Using various weave structures and knotting methods, we'll discover how to achieve geometric shapes and contours. Freeform weaving is imaginative, forgiving, and--be forewarned--completely addictive.
