From warping the loom to finishing techniques, students will walk away with the skills needed to use a Mirrix Loom. On the second day, as students begin to finish their bracelets (note: these can be turned into wall hangings and not bracelets if you’d prefer) they will be able to try their hand at weaving with handspun yarn and learn some more tapestry techniques on a larger scale as well as see the process of making handspun demonstrated. Each day will begin at 10 am. There will be a break for lunch (there is a beautiful cafe right nearby, or students can bring their own lunch and spend some time enjoying the beautiful Whidbey Island scenary. At the end of the day there will be a break for wine and cheese.
