In February we hosted our most popular weave-along ever, The Prism Tapestry Weave-Along (Weave-Along 32.) This small piece was comprised of gorgeous colorful yarn and silk woven on a white background. We're bringing back this weave-along for those of you who missed it (and for those who want to weave another) with the option to make the project in one of three sizes (8” x 9.25”, 4.5” x 6” or 2.5" x 3") and with either a black or white wool and silk background.
The Prism Tapestry Kit Second Edition is now available for purchase. You will get a link to sign up for the weave-along in the kit.
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.
What skills will you learn in this weave-along?
-How to warp a Mirrix loom
-The following tapestry techniques:
-Weaving in opposite directions (meet and separate)
-Dotting (used only on the version with the white background)
-Finishing a tapestry wall-hanging
What do you need to begin:
-A Mirrix Loom:
