Learn to Weave a Wall Hanging Students will learn how to hand weave their own tapestry wall hanging on a lap loom. All materials for weaving and learning techniques are included, but students are encouraged to bring fibers (yarns or string) and objects they would like to incorporate in their tapestries. *Please note weaving is a slow process and you won't be able to finish a complete wall hanging but each student will take home their 12"x12" loom & enough yarns to continue the exploration. In this workshop we will review the tools and function of a lap loom, shuttle and warping the loom. Basic techniques that will be covered are the tabby (plain weave), slit tapestry, soumak, rya knot and pile loop. Students will also be provided a demonstration on finishing techniques, how to weave the back of your tapestry in and mounting on a dowel. About Designer: Prissage Studio is a textile exploration project founded by Ahna Hughes. It chronicles her experience as a self-taught tapestry weaver as she works with new fibers, learns techniques and explores the textile medium of tapestry weaving. Since founding Prissage Studio, she has taught at the Textile Art Center as a weaving and sewing instructor. She finds working with her hands to be therapeutic and hopes to inspire, encourage and challenge others to experiment and create.

At Young and Able, we are unique in the way we source our content. We take the time to engage with each and every one of our designers in order to convey their individual styles and processes to our customers. We believe that platforms like these are a necessary resource when establishing an emerging designer’s career and we want to contribute to a community that nurtures and supports them. Our designers take pride in their creative practices, particularly in regards to production. Many of the products featured on Young and Able are made by hand on a small scale with locally sourced materials. With recent focus on sustainability, “slow” fashion, and transparency, manufacturers and consumers are paying more attention to the quality and craft that goes into each of their products. We want to tell the story behind how and why a product is made, and create a community where both designers and consumers can interact at every level. When you support the designers at Young and Able, you are doing more than just buying their products---You are learning about their inspirations and stories, and supporting their future in the industry.
