Weave a Beautiful Scarf in a Day

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.

You must register on Eventbrite here.

LOCATION: Health Education Center, Valley Presbyterian Hospital (VPH) is located at 15107 Vanowen Street, Van Nuys, CA 91405 between Sherman Way to the north and Victory Blvd. to the south; Sepulveda Blvd. to the west and Kester St. to the east. If you're using Google Maps or another GPS system, follow directions to the Valley Presbyterian Hospital Noble Street Parking Garage.

There is street parking in the surrounding neighborhood or you can use the hospital's Noble Street parking garage and we will validate. Avoid spots marked “physician.” You are most apt to find parking on the lower or basement levels. Be sure to note where you are, because the lot can be confusing. (Each floor is marked by a color but the spaces are not numbered.)

From the parking garage, take the elevator up or down to the ground level and walk across Noble St. to the Hospital campus. Continue walking past the Southern California Orthopedic Institute (SCOI) building on the left. Go a short distance further until you reach the Health Education Center on the left. Just past SCOI there is a ramp, which takes you down to the Health Education Center entrance. A little further on there are steps leading to entrance. Once inside, the auditorium is on the right.
