Using hand held frame looms, you will be creating stunning woven tapestries. We will draw inspiration from our favorite environments to create these pieces. You can look forward to learning the basic steps of weaving, and a more advanced style called the tapestry weave. All finished products will be taken home, along with the frame loom to use for future projects.
