Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Project by: Janice Parsons
Sample By: Karen Marshall

In Crystalline, Karen uses the structure and basics of both Tricks to Looming and Tapestry but puts a new spin on it with the addition of a slide tube closure and chain. We hope all the Tapestry samples are a gateway to stimulating your imagination and that Sam’s video opens the world of looming to you the way it did for us.

Please watch the video first to learn how easy it is to set up a loom using a design board and how to weave beads. Then, download the handout (the download button is below the photograph). At the end of the handout are the specific steps to adding the chain and slide tubes to Karen’s sample. We hope you enjoy!
