Join fiber and performance artist Steven Frost for a morning of backstrap loom weaving and micheladas. Learn how to warp and weave with a backstrap loom. Backstrap looms are found all over of the world from Japan to Central America. Frost has created his own design using a laser cutter. Backstrap loom weaving has been popular for centuries because it is completely portable and optionally communal. In other words backstrap loom weaving is the perfect craft for camping, traveling, and drinking. Learn about the history of the loom, have a few micheladas, and listen to stories by your instructor Steven Frost.
$65/per person, all materials included
Optional: an additional $20 will allow you to purchase your own backstrap loom, shuttle, and beater bars.
