This weave-along has started. You can email us if you have questions about starting the weave-along late.
This package is designed for Mirrix's 32nd Weave-Along, the Prism Tapestry (which will take place in February 2022.) You will receive a link to sign up for the weave-along inside of the weave-along kit. A loom package with the included weave-along will make a great gift!
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 kit in early 2022. This kit is perfect for anyone looking for a fun, colorful guided project to make on their Mirrix loom. It makes a wonderful gift as well!
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)
-Finishing a tapestry wall-hanging
You can learn more about Weave-Along 32 here.
This Loom Starter Package includes:
- A Mirrix Loom (choose a loom size 8″ through 16″ or the Saffron Pocket Loom) including everything that comes with the loom when purchased individually.
- A Prism Tapestry Kit for Weave-Along 32 with 100 yards of warp
What else you need to begin:
-A good pair of scissors and a measuring tape
-A sewing needle and thread for finishing
-If you purchase one of these packages with a loom without a shedding device, it will come with one 14 dent coil and no 8 dent coil (which is the coil we will be using with this project.) You can either purchase an 8 dent coil for your loom or you can weave using the 14 dent warp coil warped every other dent for 7 EPI.
-Heddles can be purchased separately if you plan to use the shedding device on a loom that has one (optional for this project). We will be demonstrating weaving on a loom without the shedding device on it.
