Special Event
Frame Loom Weaving w/ Allyce Wood
Sep 26, 2021
1:00pm - 4:00pm PST
Event date

Learn the basics of pictorial weaving through the use of humble materials and step-by-step instruction. A common picture frame, with glass and backing removed, becomes the ultimate structure with which to create upon - wound with cotton thread, and laced with a variety of yarns, this process can yield endless possibilities!

In this class, visual artist Allyce Wood will demonstrate the principles of a loom, the terms of weaving, and how to utilize color. We will discuss concepts of tension and thread patterns, elements that contribute to a polished, lasting artwork. Wood will demonstrate techniques in person and also offer guidance as you create your own piece. Bring your creative spirit and unique perspective - together we will use a variety of techniques to create one-of-a-kind designs, building motifs thread by thread.

Due to the intimate setting for this on-site class, the National Nordic Museum is requiring that all class participants be vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination may include CDC Vaccination Card (or photo), documentation from a health care provider, or state immunization system record.

Materials kits are available for an additional cost of $12. The materials kit includes:

  • 8x10 frame for your loom
  • Yarn in multiple colors
  • Tapestry needle

Learn more about Allyce Wood and her artwork on her website and follow her on Instagram.

Please note that this class will take place at the National Nordic Museum.

Cost: $30 for Members; $35 general admission
