How to hold a “Walk in and Weave Class”
Start with a weaver who is crazy about the craft.
Ask the weaver to warp a few looms and bring a variety of wefts.
Add a bright Autumn day at Bloomfield Farm.
Mix in a group of young and old adventuresome folks.
Put the shuttle in their hands.
Explain a few basics, then get out of the way.
This is what happened when I went to the Bloomfield Farm Day at Morris Arboretum on Sunday, October 20. The photos only hint at the excitement this experience generated. If you have any interest in learning how to weave, or refreshing old weaving experiences, check out the next Walk in and Weave. If these young kids can do this, so can you!
