Registration is now open for

A WOVEN JOURNEY

Travel to the fascinating land of weaving!  Learn its language, discuss project planning and weaving drafts (directions for constructing woven fabrics), measure fibers on a warping board, dress a loom (ready it for weaving), and WEAVE.  Two gamps* will be woven, one plain weave and one twill weave. Discover color interaction, investigate pattern structures, and interact with texture.

 No experience necessary.

 If you have never woven or need a full refresher, this ever-popular, tried and true outing is for you.
