Hosted by POST + Julia Targus of Electric Pink
Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 from 2pm to 6pm
Make your own custom pillow while adding some new and creative skills to your weaving repertoire.
Use techniques introduced in the Beginner Framed Wall Hanging Workshop and create a large tapestry piece that will be sewn onto a throw pillow cover. As always Julia will guide everyone through various materials, tools, and ways to warp their frame loom to make colorful compositions with many variations and textures. Each participant will go home with a 16 x 18 inch handcrafted wooden frame loom by Mutual Adoration as well as the skills and supplies to complete this project while inspiring countless more!
Although previous weaving experience is not required it is recommended.
