Beginners Circular Weaving Workshop with Jen of Nova Mercury

Saturday November 23rd 10am - 2pm EST
Bookhou - 798 Dundas St West, Toronto 

I often say that learning to weave is one of the best things to happen to me - and I hope it is the same for you!

In this four hour workshop, we will cover the basics of circular weaving, and we will work on creating a small woven wall hanging together from start to finish. 

The workshop is designed for beginners who have never woven before, or who are just learning. We will cover a short overview of tools, materials, and composition, and then delve into techniques together. The techniques that I will cover include:

-How to wrap and warp your circular loom
-Tabby/Plain weave
-Rya knots
-Looped rya knots

We will also cover finishing techniques and how to hang and care for your piece.
My teaching style is to help you learn the very basics, so that you can go on and create your own woven works afterwards. You can do so many things with these basic techniques - the possibilities are endless!

Materials are included

Can't wait to meet you and weave together! Jen x
