Looking to put your “oddiments” to good use? Beyond 101 is the perfect opportunity to dig into your “stash” and create a 10” wide woven piece to discover the effects of using different yarns in your weaving. Looms will be prewarped with a neutral shade of Encore Worsted so all you need to do is sign-up, show up and weave. Using your own loom?? Drop it off at the shop no later than April 13 and it will be ready for you the day of class or drop by the shop to pickup your Encore Worsted and prewarp your loom yourself.
For best effect, weaving yarn pieces should be at least 4 yards long each. Different colors and textures are recommended.
The cost for this class is $40.00
Loom loan (if needed) is $10.00
Class is limited to 4 people. Call to register.
