Frame loom weaving workshop with Lesley Kice Nishigawara
Learn how to weave on a frame loom, a small portable way to weave. The frame loom is used by artist Sheila Hicks to create her small Minime weavings. This workshop will take participants through the process of weaving on a frame loom including setting up the loom (warping), weaving with several weave structures, tapestry weaving to create images and/or patterns, and finishing a weaving.
Workshop fee is $100. Looms and tools for weaving are included in the fee; participants can take home a loom with them after the workshop. Yarn will be available to use, although participants are encouraged to also bring unconventional materials to weave. Students will need to bring their own scissors.
