Schedule:Saturday, December 9. 9 AM - 1 PM
About this experience
Robin is offering various workshops that you typically only find at fiber festivals around the Midwest to the St. Louis region throughout the year.
In this class learn Weft Facing on the Tapestry Sampler Frame. True Tapestry was a Weft Facing and the Warp disappears in the structure and packing of the weave.
A Tayet loom, Warp Thread, and a Tapestry Needle is included with the class. Students should bring a variety of yarn weights and preferred colors to the class. Dyed Long Wool Locks also add interest. The goal of the class is to warp the little loom in the class and begin learning the technique of Weft Facing, then will add joins and color shifts.
