WEAVING LAB

Mandi Smethells owner of  Smooth Hills Weaving will teach you how to make that gorgeous wall hanging you have always wanted! Join us at Weaving LAB and we will fit you with everything you need to make weaving your latest hobby. You will learn everything from fibers and their functions, weaving techniques, getting to know your weaving & tools, and where you can procure great yarns locally. The weaving techniques covered in this LAB include; plain weave, ray loops, shag, basic shapes, fringe, and finishing techniques. Like all of our creative workshops, this is a very hands-on experience. You will get a great start on a wall hanging project with Mandi showing you all the necessary skills to take it home and finish it. Light bites and refreshments will also be served.

WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING...

 

"The weaving lab was an experience that I really enjoyed. I absolutely loved the space that Lab occupies and the all the people working there were lovely, welcoming and bright! The class was full, but I felt the instructor answered all the questions and help I needed... that said I would have loved 30 minutes more to feel more secure in this fun, new skill."
