What you'll do
Come join us at the Zest studio as we learn from Weavings by Alexa. We are super excited to have the opportunity to watch, learn, and do, as Alexa Talbert shares her expertise at this age-old craft of working with natural fibers and creating beautiful works of art for our homes and/or offices. Each attendee will be provided with their very own loom to take home, and an assortment of fibers to work with. We will learn how to make a weaving from start to finish, with the awesome finale of taking home our endeavors. As with all of our workshops, their will be food and non-alcoholic beverages provided. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine, if you are of age and so inclined. Make sure to arrive a few minutes early. We will be starting with a meet and greet while we enjoy the lovely food spread, and then we will be getting into learning and doing! Let's create!

Where you'll be
We will be meeting in our Zest Studio, a cool old warehouse we converted and lovingly updated with our own hands into a crafting studio with an industrial vibe. Hello sandblasting concrete floors at 4am....we did that! DIY all the way! We will congregate around our handmade farm table during the workshop.
