Designed for beginners, this workshop provides participants with education and instruction on designing and weaving their first tapestry project using a frame loom and tapestry bobbins.

All participants are encouraged to bring graph paper, #2 pencils and eraser, colored pencils, scissors, metal fork, and a tape measure. Participants will take home loom, bobbins, and enough wool to finish tapestry or will have cotton warp to rethread frame loom for their next project.

The workshop fee, which includes all materials, is $75 for museum members and $100 for non-members. Pre-registration is required.   The workshop is intended for those over the age of 18, but youth ages 10 -17 may take the workshop with parent participation.  Please bring a bagged lunch and a snack.
