Weave on Little Looms at Interweave Yarn Fest 2018

You don’t need a big loom or decades of experience to weave a great piece. You can create beautiful tapestries with handheld little looms, ordinary yarn, and a little know-how.

As a professional artist, Rebecca Mezoff weaves enormous tapestries on a complex countermarche loom, but when she goes in search of inspiration, she takes a little loom not much bigger than a paperback book. Packing up the small loom with some yarn and basic tools, she goes for a hike, experiences the world, and records it in small, gem-like weavings.

Rebecca teaches her students how to weave pictures, play with color, and create delightful works of art like these beautiful small weavings. In her class “Weaving Tapestry on Little Looms,” she leads her students through the steps of warping the loom, beginning to weave, making shapes, and other tips and tricks.

Using straightforward skills and very simple equipment, you can explore the possibilities of tapestry weaving. There are a few seats remaining in Rebecca’s “Weaving Tapestry on Little Looms” class on April 12, 2018, at Interweave Yarn Fest. She also has a full day class on Friday, April 13 for anyone interesting in learning more about tapestry weaving basics, including what kinds of looms are available. These workshops are ones you don’t want to miss!
