Join Jen Duffin of Nova Mercury Design for an introductory workshop on the basics of frame loom weaving. During this three-day workshop we will explore the fundamentals of frame loom weaving, and students will work to complete a larger-scale finished woven work. We will start off the workshop with a discussion around color and composition, and examples of other contemporary woven works will be given. There will also be an introduction to materials, as well as foundational weaving techniques. Students will then work on designing and completing a woven tapestry at their own pace, with the support from the instructor. This workshop is ideal for beginners, or for folks who have very little weaving experience.

Jen is providing all of the fiber (yarn and warp thread), as well as dowels for the finished pieces. The materials fee for this is $100 per person.

Please email Jen at to let her know that you are now enrolled in the workshop and she will send you an eInvoice for you to pay the materials fee. The materials fee needs to be paid at least 45 days prior to the workshop so that Jen has time to order the correct amount of supplies.

Jen can provide you with the names of some vendors to purchase a frame loom, if you don’t already have one. The loom should be 25-30 inches x 25-30 inches.
