A new six-week weaving class begins at The Log Cabin Center for the Arts, 12700 Southwest Highway in Palos Park, Wednesday, July 1, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Weaver Nettie Botts of Palos Park teaches new students to create samplers on portable table looms during their first weeks in her class. For the remaining class weeks, Botts then helps them to design a project of their own choosing. Experienced weavers design projects in the pattern weave of their choice, using either the table looms or the large floor looms. Weavers make projects such as scarves and table linens of their own color scheme and design.
The cost of the weaving class is $90, plus a $10 materials fee for new weavers’ samplers. Students will purchase their own threads and yarns for future projects.
