Interested in learning the art of weaving, but not quite ready to tackle a room-sized Jacquard loom? Us either! We'd love to introduce you to this fun and ancient-yet-wildly-modern art form in the most accessible way possible, using small frame looms – both the wooden models available here at the store, or single-use cardboard looms you'll learn how to construct during class.

Students will be shown techniques at the beginning of this workshop, then they get to experiment all they want and weave whatever they want with tips from the instructor! 

INSTRUCTOR
Cleo (they/she)

SKILL LEVEL
Absolute Beginner

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE
None! You don't need any craft experience to take this class.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
How to warp a frame loom, soumak and tabby weaves (also called plain weave), making simple shapes, adding fringe with rya knots, finishing the weaving, attaching your tapestry to a stick or dowel.

REQUIRED MATERIALS
A small frame loom. We have a few different sizes of frame looms available for sale at the shop in a range of prices. Students can also bring in their own tapestry looms, or make a single use one out of cardboard curing the workshop (cardboard & scissors will be provided). Rigid heddle weavers are also welcome to bring their looms provided they are pre-warped and ready to weave on!

INCLUDED MATERIALS
Warp string, lots of fun weaving yarns in various sizes, colors, and textures. All yarn used during the workshop is included in the cost of the workshop. Additional yarn to take home is available for purchase.

Scissors and darning needles will all be available to use during the workshop, and are available for purchase if you would like to continue weaving at home.

Depending on each student's own pace and chosen loom size, not all students will finish their tapestry during class, but everyone will leave with the knowledge to finish at home on their own!

Class Policies

Wait Lists

If a class is full we are happy to add you to the wait list in case someone cancels. Send an email with the name of the class (and the date, if there is more than one date for the class) to hello@cleosyarnshop.com to be added.

Cancellations

We are happy to offer you a refund or store credit for any class sign up as long as you give us notice at least 48 hours before the start time of the class.

Most no show and late cancellation ticket costs will added to our Scholarship Fund. You can read more about that below.

Many of our classes have a minimum number of sign ups required to run. If a class doesn't get the required number of sign ups to run and we decide to cancel or post-pone the class we will notify those who did sign up via email between 24–48 hours before the class's start time and offer them a seat in the next class, a refund, or store credit.

Photography

When you attend a class at our shop you agree to be recorded and photographed during the class. If you would like to request that your face, hands, or body not be in any photos or videos that we share on social media please send an email requesting so any time prior to the start time of the class to hello@cleosyarnshop.com. You may still be recorded or photographed during the class but we will respect your request that the videos or images of you not be shared online.

Scholarship Fund

Our Scholarship Fund is contributed to by the shop and our community to help those who need it attend our classes and events. You can read about why we started the fund here.

When signing up for a class or event, anyone is welcome to purchase a Scholarship Fund ticket at a discount as funds allow. When a Scholarship Fund ticket is purchased, the amount discounted is taken from the Scholarship Fund to pay the shop, the shop's staff, and the teacher or host of the class or event the full regular ticket price.

If you are considering requesting a Scholarship Fund ticket but aren't sure whether it's for you or not, it probably is! The folks who have contributed to the Scholarship Fund wanted to contribute and want the funds to be used! And the lovely people putting on this class or event are still getting paid the full amount to do it. Please only pay full price if you feel you have enough to do so.

That said, we also ask that you be mindful of the amount and frequency of requests you make from the fund. Making sure funds are available to as many people as possible is a collaborative effort, so we'll check in with you and you check in with us!

If you'd like to use the Scholarship Fund, you can do so by calling the shop (929-529-7542), emailing us (hello@cleosyarnshop.com), or coming into the shop and requesting a Scholarship Ticket. We will ask you how much you are able to pay, and the funds available will cover the rest.
