If you want to try weaving just for fun to see how you like it (and we think you will!), don't miss the Southern California Handweavers’ Guild popular “Weave a Scarf in a Day” workshop.
In this workshop, you will choose from a variety of yarns with guidance from your workshop instructor, Anna Zinsmeister, one of the area's most experienced and popular fiber-arts teachers. Anna will guide you in warping a rigid heddle loom - a good loom for first-time weavers - and then guide you in efficient techniques to finish weaving your scarf by the end of the day!
We provide all yarn, looms, and equipment. If you would like to use your own rigid heddle loom, you may do so, but please let us know in advance.
