Unwind with circular weaving as we create a trio of stunning wall hangings. In this workshop, we explore techniques and materials to find our individual creative passion.

CIRCULAR WEAVING

We begin by learning the essentials of warp versus weft as Jacqueline shares her clever technique for warping on a circular frame. “I always wanted to weave on a circle frame, however I disliked the traditional spiral warp that comes with circular weaving, so through a ton of trial and error, I came up with this warping technique,” She shares. Once this technique is learned, we can apply it to warping any frame shape. To add dimension, texture, and color to our design, Jacqueline teaches us how to use wool roving with plain weave, soumak weave, and rya loops. We also learn to create a diamond trellis design by following a pattern. 

WEAVING CRAFT KIT

Jacqueline has curated a weaving starter kit with everything needed to create three circular woven wall hangings in the colors of your choice. Jacqueline encourages us to play and experiment with different techniques and materials to discover what sparks a personal creative joy as we weave.

MINDFUL CRAFTING

At the beginning of the pandemic, Jacqueline was searching for ways to relax and alleviate anxiety. “I was depressed and burnt out from my previous job,” she shares. After finding weaving, she quickly fell in love and began experimenting. Jacqueline found the craft a wonderful way to destress and relax while playing with color schemes and different techniques. “I want makers to know that weaving is all about learning what you like to do. There are techniques that avid weavers know, but what materials you use and how you use them is what makes them unique."
