Now Seeking: Schools that Provide Weaving/Fiber Arts Instruction
If you provide on-site weaving and/or fiber arts-related instruction/education, we are interested in listing your enterprise. See page on Education for details.
Weaving is an ancient textile art and craft that involves placing two sets of threads or yarn made of fiber called the warp and weft on the loom and turning them into cloth. This cloth can be plain (in one color or a simple pattern), or it can be woven in decorative or artistic designs, including tapestries. Weaving involves techniques that can be “on-loom” or “off-loom”, depending on the type of weaving and the artist.
Spinning is the process of creating yarn (or thread, rope, cable) from various raw fiber materials.
