Beginners Circular Weaving Workshop with Jen of Nova Mercury

Saturday October 19th 12-4 EST

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 online 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 live and will take place over zoom- you will be emailed a zoom link the week of the workshop. The workshop will be recorded so if you cannot attend the recording will be sent to you afterwards. The recording is yours to keep, and you can watch it as many times as you need. 

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
-Soumak
-Bubbling
-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! The cost of the workshop includes a circular weaving kit with everything you need to complete the project. 

Included in your kit will be:

-12” metal hoop

-At least 350g of high quality fibres in a rainbow of colours!

-Warp thread

-Tapestry needle

(You will need to provide scissors and a fork or a small comb.) 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A PRE-ORDER - KITS WILL SHIP OUT IN LATE SEPTEMBER IN TIME FOR THE WORKSHOP.

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