This weave-along has started. You can email us if you have questions about starting the weave-along late. 

If you previously purchased a Prism Tapestry Kit with 14 colors, that kit is the one we are using in the weave-along and either that kit or this updated 18 color kit will work for the weave-along. We just couldn't resist adding four more gorgeous Array colors that became available. 


This kit is designed for Mirrix's 32nd Weave-Along, the Prism Tapestry. You will receive a link to sign up for the weave-along inside of the weave-along kit. 

This gorgeous small weaving project is a 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 that goes along with this loom starter package in early 2022. This package  is perfect for anyone looking for a fun, colorful guided project to make on a brand new Mirrix loom. It makes a wonderful gift! 

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.

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) 
     -Eccentric wefts
     -Weft blending
-Finishing a tapestry wall-hanging
