In this beginning weaving workshop we will make a holiday wall-hanging to keep for yourself or gift.

You will learn how to make a loom, how to warp it, and basic weaving techniques will be taught.

You will need:

  • 2 pieces of sturdy cardboard (8x10ish)

  • Ruler

  • Scissors

  • Pencil

  • Warp yarn: a thin strong cotton. Sugar and Cream brand in ecru is suggested. Cotton twine will also work

  • Yarns: one background color of your choice (neutrals suggested), Green (thicker than the background if possible), Brown.

  • Tapestry needle (Amazon or craft stores)

  • Dowel or stick the width of your loom for hanging

  • Optional: small ornaments or large beads

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.

About the teacher:

Lisa Denney has been drawing and painting since the 8th grade. After ditching studies in biology, she earned a degree in art from the University of West Georgia, and that led to a career in rug and carpet design. She rented a studio in 2015 to get the rug design out of the house, and found a community and motivation to make art. She comes from a long line of women that enjoy crocheting and knitting and the awful craft of “plastic canvas.” She currently makes her home in Chattanooga with her man and her cat.
