TAPESTRY WEAVING CLASS April 5-6
We are excited to be offering a Tapestry Weaving class at Warner Mountain Weavers in Cedarville, CA. This one time class will be taught by Keyaira Terry. Keyaira will be traveling up from the Bay Area just to teach this class. This will be a one time offering so if you are at all interested we would love to see you there! See more of Keyaira's work @Keyaiira or www.Keyaiira.com. She makes gorgeous tapestries and has been using Lani's Lana Fine Rambouillet Wool in some of her pieces.
You will complete a Woven Tapestry Wall Hanging to take home during the two day class. Most materials, a teaching fee, and the loom rental are included in the price. An optional lunch and ranch tour is also included. (If you do not want the lunch/ranch tour please see the separate listing for just the class.) Loom rental fees will not be waived. All students need to use the same loom to ensure that Keyaira can teach everyone consistently. You will need to provide 3-4 skeins of thick (the thicker the better) yarn. You can purchase this yarn at Warner Mountain Weavers during the class. We have several options. If you have yarn in your stash that you would like to use please bring it with you! Almost any yarn can be used.
Following the class on Friday, April 5, 2019 there will be a ranch tour of the Bare Ranch in Eagleville, CA. If you are traveling from out of the area this is a rare experience to see more of beautiful Surprise Valley and see where the sheep are raised who grow Lani's Lana Fine Rambouillet Wool. If the weather is not pleasant, we will do a car tour and tour of the lambing barn including a wool classing demo by Lani Estill, Certified Wool Classer. We can still see the ranch and stay dry!!
