Playdate June 26th!
Freeform Weaving On A Frame Loom 

1pm - 4pm At The Artful Lawyer

318 N Main St

Blacksburg.                               

On June 26th, we will gather at the Artful Lawyer from 1pm till 4pm and learn Jennifer Newcomb's technique to make a tapestry.  

Using a frame as a basic loom, we will warp the loom and learn basic weaving techniques and tapestry techniques. We use yarn, fiber, and fabric to create....pictures (traditional tapestry); collages; free forms.. (If you have a piece of lace, fabric, yarn, feathers, or something special to you, you can incorporate it into the weaving!)

 

This workshop gives you the basics--a jumping off point for you to pursue fiber as an artistic expression. The cost is $10 and is limited to the first 12-15 people.  

Jennifer will supply all materials except the frame.

Students should bring

  • Scissors

  • Frame (8 x 10 or any near that size. 9 x 12, 10 x 10, etc.) It can be a picture frame or artists' canvas without the canvas. Frame will not be damaged by weaving, and can be reused.

 

Materials include: needles, scissors, assorted yarns, hair picks, forks, fiber and "treasures."​

About Jennifer:

Spinning is my passion. I love dyeing my fibers and turning them into unique yarns. I knit and crochet, and will try almost any fiber technique that will put my yarns to good use! I weave in the Saori way, on Saori looms, and occasionally on rigid heddle looms. Not one to follow patterns or to be stuck in a box, I prefer freeform weaving as a way to express my creativity.
