Little Black Sheep Studio Weaving Workshop Series.jpg

Kate Koconis of Little Black Sheep Studio is coming back to Quirk to teach a Weaving Workshop Series! This series will feature introductory and advanced classes, so all levels of experience are welcome! In the Introduction to Weaving class you will learn the basic weaving techniques Kate uses when creating her one of a kind blankets, pillows, hanging planters and weavings. In the Advanced Weaving Workshop we’ll be making weavings like big puffy clouds. Kate will show you a couple of her favorite techniques using mostly wool roving, to create irresistibly soft fluffy wall hangings. All materials will be provided for you, and you’ll get to leave with a wall hanging all your own. Some prior weaving experience is required. Participation in my beginners workshop is preferred, but not necessary.

$50 per participant


Spots for the workshops are only secured through payment either in store or over the phone with a Quirk Gallery employee!
