Join us for Warp, Weft, and Weave, Saturday, September13 at 1pm. Register Now!
Weaving is a practice that spans across thousands of years of history and touches almost every culture, including some rich Kentucky traditions. In this exciting workshop, you can bring the process of weaving home with you!
We all begin by learning how to make a loom using everyday materials like cardboard. Then students can explore the process of weaving, learning what terms like warp and weft mean. Through weaving, students can incorporate abstract, geometric designs, such as those seen in traditional Navajo rugs and Kentucky coverlets. Students are welcome to bring their own scrap fabric to work into their weavings in addition to the yard, fabric and loom materials included in the price of your ticket. At the end of the day, bring your loom home to continue working on your weaving!
The workshop will be led by Elizabeth Smith, artist in residence at The Cabbage Patch Settlement House and The Little Loomhouse.
Local Speed is located at 822 East Market Street and is open on Fridays, 12-8 p.m. and Saturdays, 11-4 p.m.
