A Rainbow Runs Through It

Sent Therese my class proposal for the upcoming Fiber Frolic (Mar. 3)

A Rainbow Runs Through It ~ Pin-Woven Tapestry ~ Ellen Shipley

Let’s add a rainbow to our starry sky.

Learn to paint with yarn. We’ll make our own looms from foam core board, straight pins and dental floss (yes, dental floss!), and learn a free-form, textured way to weave postcard-sized tapesties.

We’ll use an assortment of weaving yarns in different sizes, textures and colors, along with buttons and beads.

Class Length: 2 hours

Class Size: 6-8; child friendly; no minimum size

Class Fee: $10

Bring: scissors; (you might like to bring interesting textured non-stretchy yarn and beads to play with)

I plan to add a rainbow arcing from left middle to bottom right, as the theme for this frolic is color.
