One of the interesting aspects of weaving is the variety of looms available to use.  Many classes at the Falmouth Art Center use traditional table or floor looms.  Thinking of the loom as a tool, this class will begin to explore different looms.  A simple loom can be made from cardboard or a stretcher frame with nails.  Students will begin to explore weaving on looms limited to simple weave structures.  Students will be encouraged to work creatively and, if interested, to push the limits of weaving materials beyond yarn, perhaps to include untraditional materials.  Traditional weaving techniques, including flat tapestry and raised techniques, will be covered.

 

For students who have taken the small handheld loom class, this class will be a continuation.  For others, it will serve as an introduction to weaving.  The class will also include how to best finish and prepare a woven piece for hanging. 

The instructor, Christine Anderson (774-487-2134), encourages you to contact her if you have questions about this class.
