Peg Loom Weaving
Have you ever wanted to learn how to weave like our ancestors did? Try peg loom weaving – a highly portable and ancient form of weaving that requires no tension on the loom! Peg looms can be used to make rugs, table runners, blankets, scarves, mug rugs, seat cushions, trivets, and more! During the class, students will learn how to warp, begin and continue weaving, along with finishing out a weaving project. We will complete an 8” trivet during our class time using washed wool locks and roving. Students will be able to choose from multiple sheep breeds for their project, including Shave Em to Save Em endangered breeds to earn passport stickers (4oz required for sticker).
The class fee includes both the materials fee and the workshop fee.
Saturday Morning, 3 hours
Morning classes start at 9 am. Afternoon classes start at 1 pm. All-day classes meet in both time slots, with an hour break for lunch.
Students to Bring
- Your own peg loom if you have one, or looms will be available for purchase during the class
Instructor Will Provide
- Enough 100% wool fiber to complete an 8" trivet
