Join us for Basic Weaving II with Joan Namkoong

Weavers who want to practice their loom set up skills and weaving techniques will work on a project of their own choosing. You’ll determine this project with the instructor – scarf, runner, napkins, towels – and bring your own supplies. In class, you’ll set up your loom and complete your project, learning tips, tricks and good weaving practices. Prerequisite: Basic Weaving I. (Instructor work in photo)

By the end of class, weavers will have their one-of-a-kind project to take home. (Student work in photo)

What to bring:

  • Your own yarns for your own project
  • Small scissors
