Students will learn:
-How to set-up and warp a Saffron Pocket Loom

What’s a weave along? A weave-along is a free online course. We will lead participants through a project woven on a loom. Every Sunday participants will get an email with links to instructions for the week ahead that might include downloadable .PDFs, online written content and/or videos. This is not a live event, but does take place over a specific time frame so participants are all working on the same part of the project at generally the same time. Weave-along participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media sites including the Mirrix Facebook Page, Mirrix Facebook Group and Mirrix Ravelry Page. This is a community event!

When does the weave-along take place? Participants will receive three emails at the beginning of each week (On January 31st, February 7th and February 14th) and will be able to work on each lesson throughout the week. All information will be available after the weave-along for those who cannot participate in real time.

Note: The weave-along will not detail how to weave the exact same pattern as pictured, but will give you all the tools to use these colors and these techniques to make a similar tapestry of one’s own design!
