 "Weave a Scarf in a Day," a class taught by textile artist Jennifer Baum, will be held at the Petersham Art Center on Saturday, December 6, from 11AM to 5PM. Participants will create a beautiful chenille scarf by the end of the day.

Ms. Baum will guide beginners and experienced weavers alike through the process of choosing yarn, deciding on patterns and colors, and finally how to weave the scarf itself.  The participants will learn the mechanics of the simple Rigid Heddle Loom, also known as a knitters loom, direct warping method, and tabby weave structure, as well as fringe and finishing techniques.  A loom will be provided to each class member to use during the class.

Baum operates an arts studio, The Weaving Shed, where she teaches fiber weaving and basket weaving, as well as other fine art and craft.  She often supplies wool for her work from her own alpacas. She is a juried fiber artist who has been studying and teaching about weaving for over ten years, while operating her studio and her Sunny Knoll Alpaca farm in Hubbardston.

The cost for the class is $27.50 for members and for nonmembers. There is a $35 materials fee for the chenille yarn. People should bring their own brown bag lunch. Teens age 16 and up and adults are encouraged to attend. Call the Petersham Art Center to register or for more information at 978-724-3415.
