Instructor: Carol Vales

Workshop Description: Bow loom weaving is an ancient weaving technique. Traditionally the loom would have been a flexible tree branch with warp threads attached on both ends, then flexing the bow to create tension on warp threads. The threads were separated by a piece of hide or wood.

Now, household and hardware store items can produce a bow loom. We will be using a wooden dowel, paper clips, duct tape, cotton warp, tapestry needle, and beads to create a bracelet, strap or hatband.


Supplies: Materials will be provided, but if you have a preferred color, a 3/2 or 5/2 cotton warp is recommended.

Materials/Handouts Fee: $5.00
