An Introduction to Hand Weaving on a Loom: If you ever thought you would like to try your hand at weaving, you will be interested in this course. No equipment or materials are necessary, just a pair of hands and a curious mind.  This is an in-person course and will take place in the guild studio in Qualicum Beach. Participants will learn how to weave on a 4 shaft loom.  The course will cover the weaving vocabulary, how to select materials, design and weave a project and how to "finish" newly woven cloth.  Students will create a sampler using materials provided by the instructor, and then design and weave their own set of mug rugs.  Looms, weaving tools and materials for the sampler will be provided.

Instructor: Sharon Mackay. Sharon fell in love with weaving after taking the beginner weaving course through the guild. Since then she hasn’t looked back and is looking forward to taking the Level One Masters Weaving Program at Old’s College in Alberta this spring. Her favourite part of weaving is creating a design from her imagination.
