Weaving Classes

Frame Loom Weaving
Chicago Botanic Garden
In this class, we examine the many possibilities of creating woven forms using a simple frame loom. Students will experiment with the techniques of tapestry and plain-weave, and then explore ways of creating surface, image, and text within a woven form to create independent projects. Students will be exposed to both contemporary and historical artworks and will participate in skill-building demonstrations to broaden their technical skills. Looms and yarn will be provided for beginning students. Open to all levels.
