Kids, teens and their adults can learn about the ancient art of weaving from local members of the Frances Irwin Handweavers Guild.
Participants will be introduced to basic techniques on a table top loom, and then try their hand at adding to a collective weave on the loom. The cumulative result of the weave will then be displayed at the library at a later time. Traditional hand spinning on a spinning wheel will also be demonstrated. The Francis Irwin Handweavers is a guild of more than 40 active fiber enthusiasts who meet once a month in Sussex County, New Jersey, to explore weaving and fiber-related topics. Founded in the 1960s, the guild is a tremendous resource for the beginner weaver. No registration; drop-in, on a first come-first served basis.
