Weaving Workshop #5 – 2/13/22
February 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$30
Please register for the session(s) you would like to attend. You may register for as many weekends as you desire. Participants who attend more than one weekend will have the opportunity to advance their skills and weave additional projects. This is ONE class, you must pick the date you want to attend.
In our upcoming Weaving Workshop class series, participants will:
- Be introduced to the art of weaving
- Use a loom to create their very own woven piece to take home
- Have the opportunity to participate in a communal Friendship Academy community weaving project
- Learn about being eco-friendly as they reuse and upcycle salvaged fiber from items like t-shirts, sweaters, and fabric remnants
Weaving is a calming and fun multisensory activity that can create new avenues for creative expression. The repetitive nature of the weaving process also offers a lot of opportunities to work on eye-hand coordination, motor skills, pattern recognition, and sequencing. Participants will feel successful and confident learning this new skill as Kelsey breaks down the weaving process into small steps that can be practiced and repeated at their own pace. At the end of each workshop participants will leave with a sense of accomplishment and a beautiful tangible product to keep or share.
Previous weaving experience is not necessary. Shared equipment will be cleaned between uses.
