Let's weave together and gather in one of Brooklyn's treasures, Prospect Park!

Learn the basics of hand weaving on the simple yet powerful WE GATHER frame loom. Perfect for those on the hunt for a new skill, this workshop covers all you need to know to get weaving on this very portable loom. We’ll cover setting up the loom, basic weaving techniques, texture, and finishing methods, all the while experimenting with fun and varied materials. Every participant gets to take a WE GATHER custom Loom Kit home so that the weaving never has to stop!

 

What’s included:

-WE GATHER Loom Kit, including wooden frame loom, two shuttles, shed stick, two wooden needles, weaving comb, and tapestry needle

-Wooden dowel to hang finished weaving

-All necessary yarns

-Use of WE GATHER weaving tools

-Illustrated weaving guide

*All yarns and materials are provided, though participants are welcome to bring any additional yarn or material they'd like to experiment with.

This workshop will take place outdoors in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. We will be learning picnic-style on blankets in one of the park's lawn areas. Exact location and rain alternatives will be communicated to registered participants prior to the workshop. 

 

Light refreshments will be provided, because everyone loves a park party!
