Design Your Own 4X4″ Pin Loom Patterns
A virtual class with Florencia Campos Correa.
Sept 10, 2:00–4:00pm CDT
Once you know the basics of weaving with 4×4″ pin looms, it is time to learn how to design your own blocks. Florencia will walk you through a fun and practical way to plan your patterns.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.
You will learn how 4×4″ stitch patterns work and then how to design and create patterns on paper with different figures, motifs, geometric shapes, etc. Learning how to plot your designs on paper will help you see how different techniques are used; you will be able to explore and choose them as needed.
