The Woven Wall Hanging Workshop


Let’s weave! ???? in a flower shop! ???? 

Have you ever wanted to learn weaving, but didn’t know where to start? Well then this class is the perfect way to get introduced to the process.

In this 3 hour in-person workshop, you will learn the basics of tapestry weaving from drafting a design, to setting up your loom and learning a variety of weaving techniques, then putting the  finishing touches on your piece. Your instructor Jessie Mordine will also provide a presentation on tapestry weaving which includes some of its history, and some additional sources of inspiration. 

You will leave this class with the skills to complete your own wall-hanging or “woven drawing” and will be able to incorporate flowers from Stems when creating your artwork. Looms will be available for purchase for an additional $60 if you want to take one home!

About the instructor: 

Jessie Mordine Young is a Brooklyn-based artist who researches, writes about, curates, makes and teaches textile art. In one of her more recent bodies of work, she embarked on a project of creating daily artworks, which she calls “woven drawings” or “thread sketches.” These pieces directly connect to her experiences in nature, where color and texture become tangible references to memory. Jessie is a recent graduate (2021) from the Masters Program in the History of Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. She received her BFA in 2015 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) with a dual degree in Art History and Studio Art in Fiber and Material Studies. She is a part-time lecturer/faculty in the MFA Textiles Program and the Interior Design program at Parsons School of Design. You can view her woven work here.
