Workshop trailer

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

The trailer of our next workshops is already on Youtube. Watch it here.

It was a hard recording and editing work, but highly enjoyable. We included some of the projects developed in my book “100 pin loom squares“, such as throw, hairband, fingerless gloves, slippers, etc. in a different fun way.

Rain of inspiration

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

In this rainy day, what a better opportunity to get inspired by wool. I have no reasons to be against acrylic yarns, I think all kinds of yarn can coexist, they all have pros and cons. But alpaca and sheep wool have got incomparable features, and the mere fact that they are natural makes them even more lovable.

And the day arrived

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

Yes, it has. In less than 24 hours, our first workshop of zoom loom mini weaving loom will start 🙂

What zoom loom is? A weaving loom rarely known in Chile, some call it colombian weaving loom. The old version used to be the weave-it loom and it was quite famous a fews decades ago. Zoom loom is a commercial product of the US company Schacht Spindle, based on the weave-it loom. The zoom loom is a redesign, a revival, plastic made, a modern and much more attractive weaving set.

First Workshop

:::LEER EN ESPAÑOL

Here they are, our first graduated students: Mela, Marce, Carmen, Martita and Angelita.

It was a very entertaining am workshop, full of chating, cookies and media lunas. What else can be a better combo: weaving loom + delicious food = full tummy + happy souls 🙂

In the pic you can see my 30×30 cm (12×12″) weaving loom in action. Significantly more appropiate to teach, trying to do that with the original 10×10 cm loom is reserved to only 20/20 vision..
