This is a great way to weave in miniature. This is a project based class for beginners on up.

In this class, we will be using a handmade loom designed especially for making wearable weavings. It is sized for a  22” necklace but can be used for making smaller neck pieces and making bracelets as well. In this class we will be learning some of the basic  weaving techniques including Tabby Weave and Rya Knots for making fringe.  Each participant will learn how to warp their personal loom. We will explore weaving tools such as straight and bent needles, a beater or comb, a shed stick, mini shuttle.(all are provided in your kit .) We will be working in class to complete your own wearable l woven art piece. Students will learn how to start and end their neckpiece, as well as, warp, weave and take the work from the loom. This is a hands on class. I will show you how to start and finish your piece. Wearable weavings are great stash busters.  After class you will not only have  a wearable piece to keep and the techniques for weaving,  but the tools to keep developing and making all sorts of wearable weavings.

I personally have not seen another loom this size available anywhere and with other mini tools you will be set for future making wearable weavings.
