Circular Weaving with Robert Mahar

April 30, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Robert Mahar is joining us for a fun weekend of stitching classes. If you’re buying tickets for two classes, save 10% by entering code: ROBERTRULES at checkout. If you’re buying tickets for all three classes, save 20% by entering code ROBERTISANEXCELLENTHUMAN at checkout.

Traditional weaving looms are amazing – they also tend to be the size of an
upright piano (or small pipe organ.) Consider this class an introduction to NON-traditional weaving – with round looms that fit perfectly in your lap. Join designer and maker Robert Mahar and learn a unique approach to an old-school craft – it’s an opportunity to play with beautiful yarn and make a grouping of three weavings to hang on your wall.

The heart of this class is an elegant craft hack in which you’ll learn how to transform classic embroidery hoops into round weaving looms. The technique takes a little practice, but it’s so rewarding! Need a little encouragement? You’ll receive enough materials to create a trio of circular weavings and Robert will have one loom already warped for you and ready to weave.

All materials (embroidery hoops, warp string, a limited palette of beautiful yarns and weaving needles!) are provided and included in the cost of the class. However, if you have favorite yarn (worsted-weight, bulky or chunky yarns work best!) or want specific colors – you are encouraged to bring them with you to the workshop.

This class will take place in person at Monster on Saturday, April 30th starting at 5:30 p.m. PST.

Attendees will also receive 20% off any purchases made at Monster that same day.

Robert Mahar is a California based artist, designer and embroidery enthusiast who develops and teaches imaginative crafts and clever do-it-yourself projects and products. He’s also a proud alumni of the inaugural season of NBC’s crafting competition show Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. With an education in studio arts and art history, he has worked in a variety of creative fields including 13 years as an appraiser of modern and contemporary art.
