Peg looms are simple wooden weaving frames that can produce lovely scarves, rugs, bags, table runners. Students will learn how to warp a peg loom, begin weaving a project, and learn how to remove the finished project from the loom.
Each student will receive a peg loom by “Papa’s One-of-a-Kind Peg Looms.” These looms are made from 100-year-old fence posts from Sebastopol, CA. Each piece has been cut, sanded, stained, oiled, waxed and rubbed with love by Papa, who is from Sonoma County and is 86 years young. There will be an instruction sheet to take home with your loom.
We will have a potluck lunch, giving everyone time to socialize with the instructor and fellow students.
What to bring:
- Yarn in the colors of your choice. We will have a limited amount of free yarn that you can choose from as well.
- Something to share for the potluck lunch
- Personal beverages and snacks
- Notebook and camera if desired
