BACKSTRAP WEAVING w/ Kate O'Farrell of Greystones
Sunday, July 12th 10-4pm
Have you ever wondered how the artisans of Guatemala make their weavings??? Well Kate O'Farrell of Greystones is here to teach you how! You'll learn everything you need to know to create your own beautiful backstrap woven masterpieces. Perfect for belts, camera straps, guitar straps, etc. No experience required! AND you'll get a loom to take home with you! Learn this ancient craft and have a blast doing it.
Here's a little blurb from the master herself:
Backstrap weaving is an ancient craft still practiced in many parts of Central America. The Backstrap loom is extremely portable and uses your body to create the tension necessary to weave. We will begin class with the basics of Backstrap weaving. Once you're comfortable weaving, you will learn to make designs using the Pick up technique from Veracruz, Mexico.
Be sure to bring your camera for a demonstration on How to Warp your Loom!
You will be provided with a pre-warped loom, ready to weave, as well as your personal kit to take home and continue your weaving
Limited to 6 people
A 5 hour workshop for $75
All materials and Hand made loom kit included.
**AN ADDITIONAL CLASS WILL BE HELD THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 28TH AT BUSY BEING!! IF INTERESTED, PLEASE SIGN UP AT WWW.BUSY-BEING.COM/EVENTS**
