About the event

Weaving is one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world. Weaving and cloth-making started as a family endeavor, and the making of clothing for the family was usually the woman’s job. It wasn’t until the mid-1800s that factory industry was introduced. Tap into both the history of hand-made cloth and the Florida Maritime Museum’s building in this beginners-friendly weaving class. The building now known as the Florida Maritime Museum served as the home and weaving studio of master weaver Robert Sailors from 1974 to 1995. Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of Sailors’ pieces that were woven in our building and now reside in our collection.  

In this class, you will learn how to make a loom, warp (thread) it, and weave some fun designs for a beautiful wall hanging. We will be working with different colors of yarn to create stripes, triangle, and even some fringe. We will not be able to complete your wall hanging in one class, but you will leave with your loom and the skills you need to complete your weaving at home. Wear clothes and shoes that can get messy—this is a hands-on class!

All materials will be provided. Wear clothes you don't mind getting a little messy- this is a hands-on class!

Instructor: JoAnn Mancuso

This class is mostly intended for adult learners, but older children who are able to successfully follow directions and safely complete the activity without disturbing the experience of other students are welcome. Please contact with any questions. Minors may NOT be left unattended.
