Art Explorers: Straw Loom Weaving at the Walnut Creek Branch Library

Saturday, November 2, 2019

Children ages 6 through 12 can learn to weave on their own straw loom at this month’s Art Explorers program.

Attendees at the November event will construct their own looms out of drinking straws, then feed separate strands of yarn though each straw to create the warp and wrap the yarn around the straws to make the weft. Participants will continue this method of weaving to complete a bookmark or bracelet. Staff will also explain how to mix yarn colors for those who wish to do additional weaving at home.

2:30 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 2
Walnut Creek Branch Library
Registration opens Saturday, Oct. 19

Children attending Art Explorers learn about different types of art, then develop their STEAM art skills by creating their own masterpieces. Registration is required to attend each Art Explorer program and is limited to 24 participants. Registration may be completed by phone or in person at the Walnut Creek Branch Library beginning Saturday, Oct. 19. All supplies are provided by the library.
