Using wall-based peg looms, participants will learn the fundamentals of weaving, color theory, and the creative reuse of common materials, such as turning old T-shirts into yarn. Participants will lay out and weave their own rugs to take home with them at the end of class.
With the skills and understanding learned during this weaving workshop at The Morton Arboretum, participants will be able to continue weaving at home, with instructions on low-cost loom construction and simple weaving techniques.
Bring four to six old worn or unwanted T-shirts in colors you like and fabric scissors.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum.
