PIN LOOM WEAVING with Margaret Stump


This course offers an introduction to pin loom weaving – weaving on a small, portable loom in the palm of your hand. Participants will have the opportunity to weave on both 2-inch and 4-inch looms. Each participant will weave squares to construct a Flat Rat, invaluable as a bookmark or to use as a somewhat bizarre coaster. Students will build weaving and construction skills including the use of simple crochet (for the tiny rat ears). 

Here is an opportunity to explore a new fiber craft that is gaining popularity with people who are new to weaving as well as seasoned weavers who would like to expand their practice with a light, portable form of weaving. Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

The use of all looms and weaving tools, as well as all the required yarn, will be provided by the instructor.
