All workshop registrations are non-refundable, unless the class is cancelled by the Festival.

Please note that your 3 day pass is included with this workshop (1 per person).


Learn to do continuous weave on a 40-inch triangular loom to make a small shawl that can be worn as a cowl. Several finishing options will be demonstrated. Other weaving techniques such as bias weaving and cut strand weaving will be shown for future weaving projects on your own. Three hours should be enough time to complete the project but students that are not done will have the information to complete later, on their own. The loom is yours to keep and enjoy!

  • A 6 mm Tunisian crochet (a regular 6 mm crochet hook will also do)
  • Scissors
  • A tapestry needle to weave in ends (rounded end)
  • An embroidery needle (pointy end)
  • A wide-tooth comb

Material provided:
