The Happy Weaver Workshop – Taught by Terry Martin
Get ready to enjoy your loom. This workshop is for you if you are a new weaver, it will help you develop good habits from the beginning. This workshop also is for you if you put the loom aside and keep planning to get back to it but just can’t seem to make yourself. We will be weaving a project but the focus will be to have a well-prepared loom and to cultivate the ergonomics of weaving. This results in few broken threads and fewer frustrations. Plan to get organized, learn good habits, refresh your skills, enhance your understanding of the process from the beginning to the finished project and be a Happy Weaver.
