1:00 pm | Cost: $30 – $35

National Nordic Museum

Learn the basics of pictorial weaving through the use of humble materials and step-by-step instruction. A common picture frame, with glass and backing removed, becomes the ultimate structure with which to create upon – wound with cotton thread, and laced with a variety of yarns, this process can yield endless possibilities!

In this class, visual artist Allyce Wood will demonstrate the principles of a loom, the terms of weaving, and how to utilize color. We will discuss concepts of tension and thread patterns, elements that contribute to a polished, lasting artwork. Wood will demonstrate techniques in person and also offer guidance as you create your own piece. Bring your creative spirit and unique perspective – together we will use a variety of techniques to create one-of-a-kind designs, building motifs thread by thread.

Due to the intimate setting for this on-site class, the National Nordic Museum is requiring that all class participants be vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination may include CDC Vaccination Card (or photo), documentation from a health care provider, or state immunization system record.

Materials kits are available for an additional cost of $12. The materials kit includes:

8×10 frame for your loom
Yarn in multiple colors
Tapestry needle
