Get in on the fabric weaving craze! Warning: this is totally addictive. Heather will guide you through the basic foundation set up and how to weave a tumbling block textile. Then you will get to see several examples of how color and pattern play out in different ways using this technique. We'll discuss what to do with your woven textile - like make a pillow! Bring your own fabric, see supply list for details.
