WITH JUDITH SYMONDS AT FIBER CRAFT STUDIO
In this three-session course for beginners, we will use 12 x 16” lap looms to learn the what, why, and how of warp and weft.
First we will warp our looms, and then we will master even weave, kilim, cross-hatching, soumak, twining, pick, knotting, fringe, and more. Finally, we will learn how to combine different tapestry stitches, yarn textures, and colors to achieve endless creative possibilities. Students will complete several small projects, and acquire the skills needed to continue exploring tapestry weaving on their own.
The course fee includes a lap loom and materials. Students are encouraged to bring their own scrap and leftover yarns.
Judith Symonds has been teaching fiber arts to adults and children for many years. She completed a two-year training at the Heimatwerkschule in Switzerland, earning a master of weaving certification.
