Floor Loom Weaving for Beginners & Beyond

This is a 3-day workshop designed for the beginning weaver or those needing a refresher class.  One need not know anything about weaving or looms to be suitable for this workshop.


In this class, students will:

  • choose & plan an item to weave
  • choose the yarn
  • warp the loom from start to finish
  • weave the project
  • take the project off the loom

Examples of projects that can be woven in the 3-day workshop:

  • 3 hand or dish towels
  • 2 wool throw rugs
  • 1 shawl/wrap
  • long table runner
  • 4 placemats

Another Weaving Opportunity

Phyllis will be teaching a "Beginning Floor Loom" workshop in Townsend, TN at the Great Smoky Mtn. Heritage Center again this year. 


The 2-hour workshop is offered twice on Saturday, April 13, 2019:  9:30-11:30 am and 1:30-3:30 pm.


No experience is required.  Students will sit down at a pre-warped loom and create a small cotton towel in 100% cotton.  The warp will be 100% natural cotton and students will choose from a variety of colors for their weft.


The total cost is $56 for the 2-hour session and includes all yarn used.
