Lynden is offering a series of holiday giftmaking workshops between November 22 and December 12. They range from simple activities suitable for families with smaller children to more advanced workshops for adults. To enhance the celebratory spirit, we will have light refreshments available for participants. Whether you are making a gift for yourself or another, these workshops should provide a cheerful atmosphere for art making as we head into winter. To see a complete list of holiday giftmaking workshops, visit our Workshops page.

Learn the basics of weaving on a frame loom. We will build an understanding of weaving fundamentals, and then explore techniques to achieve texture and pattern as you embark on your own original piece--and begin your weaving adventures.

The weaving process is a labor of love, and it is likely that your tapestry will not be finished during the workshop. Rest assured, you will be able to take your new loom home with you, along with enough yarn and material to complete your first piece, an instruction booklet, a new weaving vocabulary, and a knowledge of the basic stitches of woven tapestry.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages.
