Circular weaving is fun technique for new weavers as well as experienced fiber artists. Learn how to warp and weave on several sizes of circle looms as you explore plain weave as well as twinning, soumak, ray knots, and loops. Students can create wall hangings, coasters, mats, cushions, embellishments for accessories, or home décor using a variety of types of yarn and roving techniques.

No experience is necessary. More experienced students are welcome to work on their own designs. The instructor works closely with each student, providing individual guidance and demonstrations.

The workshop fee includes a wooden circular loom set that is yours to take home. A $15 additional supply fee payable to the instructor covers all other materials.
