Busy the hands and quiet the mind. In this class we will focus on the act of free-form weaving as a way of meditation while creating a one of a kind piece of wall art. You will learn how to make a simple loom from things you probably have at home. Basic weaving techniques will be taught to get you going on this meditative practice.

Things you will need:

  • a piece of stiff cardboard or a hardcover book

  • ruler

  • scissors

  • yarn, twine, rope, or fabric strips

  • tapestry or yarn needle (large hole, blunt tip) OR a bobby pin

  • a fork

  • tape

  • a couple of pencils

  • branch or dowel for hanging your finished piece.

Many of us have some kind of yarn or twine around the house, but if you prefer to order materials online, please do support small businesses from Instagram or Etsy. Not only will you make a small business person happy, but you can get such interesting yarns.
