Looming in the Summer

Loomed by Pat Moore, Fall 2011
Beaders in the Guelph area will have the opportunity to learn about loomwork and create their our loomed necklace.

On three Tuesday evenings in July (3,10 &17), Maria will be teaching her loomwork series at the Crafter's Cupboard in Guelph, ON.

The first hour of the first evening will be an overview of the looming technique, with photos and finished pieces. You can sign up to attend just this part of the series if your want to have a better understanding of what goes into a loomwork piece.

The balance of evening one will be the pre-stringing of the looms.

Most will have to do final finishing at home.
