Artist Vicki Assegued teaches you how to create unique weavings on a simple frame loom that you’ll build yourself. During this workshop, you’ll learn how to string your loom, use yarn and fabric to build the main structure, and add optional lace, string, ribbon, shells, sticks, and jewelry embellishments. Vicki will share a variety of stitches and techniques, including how to make tassels, pompoms, and fringes. You’ll finish the workshop by learning how to remove the completed weaving from the loom, secure it, and hang it. No prior weaving experience is necessary to learn the skills for this fun, relaxing, versatile, and rewarding art form.
