Weave-Along 21: The Eccentric Wefts Tapestry Eyeglass Case
Today we are excited to officially announce our 21st weave-along!
We will be showing you how to make a gorgeous tapestry eyeglass case just like the one you see here.
Take an adventure, get off the grid, let your wefts do some dancing. This project can be done by anyone interested in tapestry weaving. It may look difficult, but trust us, once you get into the rhythm of it, you will have found your new favorite techniques.
What’s a Weave-Along?
A weave-along is an online course. While you do need to purchase the kit to participate in this particular weave-along, the actual course is completely free. Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok of Mirrix Looms will lead participants through a project woven on a loom. Every Sunday, participants will get an email going over what had been worked on the week before and giving instructions and tips for the week ahead.
What will you learn?
1.) How to set-up and warp a Mirrix Loom
2.) Four tapestry techniques: opposing wefts, eccentric wefts, outlining and pick and pick
3.) How to use silk to add a shimmery accent to your tapestry
4.) How to finish a fully-lined eyeglass case
You’ll get $10 off the kit and $20 off the loom starter package when you join the weave-along. The kit is required for the weave-along.
