Sep 24 & Oct 1, 2022, Sat, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm: Rigid Heddle Weaving Basics: A Parent/Child Project (in person at the Folk School Fairbanks) 
Taught by FWSG’s own Bonni Brooks and Buffy York-Dewitz! Rigid heddle looms are easy to use, sturdy and portable yet offer many of the great weaving options of more complex floor looms. We will be doing two different projects – a wall hanging for the 7 and under age group and a warm and cozy cowl for kids 8 and older. Each parent (guardian)/child combo will work together on a project selecting materials, weaving the project, taking it off the loom and finishing it for display. Everyone will leave the workshop with enough knowledge to try new projects at home! Maximum number of students: 10 parent/child pairs. Age Range: Kids: 6 to 14 years of age, adults any age.  Cost: $50. For questions,  contact Bonni Brooks at bonontherun@gmail.com . Registration only – please register on the Folk School website.
