This weave-along has already started, but you can still purchase a kit and join late! Make sure to email us after you do so to get a link to the instructions!
The Prism Tapestry project is a woven tapestry made with white and hand-painted silk and Array wool by Gist Yarn. It was designed by Claudia Chase who will be hosting the weave-along.
While a kit (or loom starter package) is required to participate in the weave-along, we will have the project available in ebook form for anyone to download after the weave-along takes place.
What is a weave-along?
A weave-along is an online course focusing on a specific project. Every Sunday for the length of the weave-along participants will get an email with links to instructions for the week ahead that might include downloadable .PDFs, online written content and/or videos. This is not a live event, but does take place over a specific time frame so participants are all working on the same part of the project at generally the same time. Weave-along participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media sites including the Mirrix Facebook Page, Mirrix Facebook Group and Mirrix Ravelry Page.

-How to warp a Mirrix loom
