Filed under: Introduction class with Bobbie, Weaving on a Loom

Bobbie is an art historian, and she runs At Home Modern. When she lived in Philadelphia, she ran a business to help people create midcentury interiors. When she purchased a mid-century home, she went on the search for bargello pillows to complement the 1960′s house. Here’s a story about Bobbie and her pillows: https://retrorenovation.com/2012/03/06/erica-wilson-and-margaret-boyles-teach-bargello-needlepoint-pillows-to-bobbie/. Since moving to Maine, she became a fiber artist weaving pieces on looms. She returns to Philadelphia for an introduction to weaving class on June 11.

Make your own woven wall hanging!

In this workshop, Bobbie says that students will learn the essentials of tapestry weaving by creating woven wall hangings using a frame loom. We will cover: • loom basics • fiber selection • weaving tools • warping a loom • stitches and knots • shapes and space • removing a weaving from the loom • various finishing techniques This workshop includes a 10-inch loom and everything you need to complete your tapestry (all yours to keep)! You are welcome to bring your own favorite yarns if you wish – I suggest bulky yarns (weight 5 or above) for beginners. Contact me (Bobbie) if you would like a larger loom for an upcharge: 14 inch +$10, 20 inch +30, 36 inch +$210.
