New Orleans Weaving Studio
Lena and Phoebe are both textile artists that share a studio space in New Orleans. They work on their looms making scarves, blankets and tapestries and also love to teach the craft to whomever is inspired to learn. They teach out of their studio as well as different locations around town from herb stores and craft shops to museums and gardens. Our goal is to keep the art of weaving alive and promote the craft as a meditative activity, a tactile workout and of course a form of artistic expression.
What we offer:
We hold private and group lessons in our studio where we teach weaving techniques on floor looms as well as frame loom and tapestry weaving.
Frame loom weaving is a fun, creative activity that can be taken anywhere. A perfect addition to any event. We supply everything you need to for a exciting weaving workshop wherever you are hosting your party!
Kids love weaving too! Ages 7 and up welcomed!
