Square Loom Weaving - Potholders with Susan Johnson

Did you have a square metal weaving loom as a child? If so, join artist Susan Johnson on a trip down Memory Lane!

If you didn't have one, you are in for a treat! Fun for all ages!

In conjunction with our Weaving Community exhibit, artist Susan Johnson will be teaching a one night workshop to create square loom potholders.

Participants will learn the basics of weaving on a square loom to create two potholders to take home, just like the ones in the gallery that Susan created for her display in the exhibit.

Using a traditional metal weaving loom you will learn how to weave and finish off a potholder ... or two! You will also learn to play with different patterns and colors.

You can opt to keep your potholders for use in the kitchen or learn to make a wallet by assembling your two potholders together. You will be provided with all the materials and a brand new square metal loom, which will be yours to take home and keep!

$45.00 per participant. All materials provided. Participation is limited and pre-registration is required. Please email Mary.Laliberte@openskycs.org to pre-register. 

Wednesday, August 2, 2023 from 6:00-8:00 pm
