Learn the art of making a wall hanging with roving with Meghan Shimek.
This class will explore working with roving, how to handle it and how to make a wall hanging. You will learn different types of roving, cover twining, plain weave, and finishing. This class will include a copper dowel to hang your weaving on, and enough roving to make a weaving with.
A roving is a long and narrow bundle of fiber. Rovings are produced during the process of making spun yarn from wool fleece, raw cotton, or other fibers. Their main use is as fibre prepared for spinning, but they may also be used for specialized kinds of knitting or other textile arts.
