Introduction to Loomweaving

September 30, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

Instructor: Tamara Allison

Begin your loom weaving journey here at Blueberry Beads! This class will teach you how to make a 3 wide bracelet by default, however, there are patterns for both a 5 wide and a 10 wide bracelet you may choose instead if you’re feeling confident. These patterns will be going home with you, so you can also save them for your next looming project! You will learn how to warp the loom for one or multiple bracelets, how to finish with a seamless technique, and variety of tips and tricks along the way. You’ll also be leaving with a fully illustrated set of instructions to keep as a reference for future projects.

Whether you bring or buy your beads, here’s what you’ll need! Only one Blueberry Beads package is needed unless otherwise noted!
