Woven Wearables Workshop (weaving & finishing simple garments) – Jan. 18, Feb. 1, Feb. 15, Mar. 1
January 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$88.00
Hand-woven clothing is eye-catching and uniquely satisfying to wear. Perhaps you have admired “haute couture” garments created by others, or you are simply ready to extend your weaving skills beyond scarves, table runners, towels and placemats to woven wearables. The Woven Wearables Workshop will teach you techniques for creating simple garments out of your own beautifully woven fabric. Learn to construct a boatneck top or simple, sleeved vest from woven fabric of your own design. Learn finishing techniques for your choice of fiber construction and garment design. Use crocheted edgings, knit shawl collars or fringe to create a truly one-of-a-kind garment.
This workshop takes place over four sessions (each session two weeks apart), giving you time to create and hopefully, complete your garment. Private consultation before and between sessions available. Sample patterns will be provided, along with 15% off yarn used for the project.
Bring your own 4- or 8-harness table loom or use one of our table or floor looms (depending on availability).
