In this class, students will make their own simple peg loom and create small woven wall hangings. We will cover all the steps from making and warping the loom, to finishing and hanging your project. A number of tapestry weaving techniques will be discussed as will elements of composition and design. This is a perfect hobby to bring you joy and relaxation during the upcoming long winter evenings.
With a fine artist’s sense of colour, a problem-solver’s sense of design, and a tree-hugger’s commitment to sustainability, Linnet Finley of Linnet Bird Designs offers soft, colourful, innovative products for kids, simple yet ingenious patterns for makers, and patient, joyful, empowering classes for those who want to develop their own sewing and handwork practice. Finley comes from a long line of textile artists and handworkers, and though she flirted with musical theatre, and detoured into environmental studies, she has arrived at a way to marry all her loves into one. Linnet Bird Designs is for those who prioritize locally handmade goods, and who look for a thoughtful approach to making.
