Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom

Talk about a huge success! Deanna Baugh rocked the house. Thousands of people from all around the World came to see  Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom live online course.

No questions were left unanswered and she showed how to weave a beautiful scarf on the rigid heddle loom.

She showed a nice selection of options to weave on the rigid heddle loom. She loves to make dish towels and a lot of our audience does too. That never crossed my mind.

How important it is to make things with our hands? Extremely! It helps you go through life and solve problems. When you create you start with an idea- abstract, try to translate that with some medium (Clay, paint, fiber), go through some frustration because when you start it does not look right and then you have a finished piece- Concrete. Going from an idea to something concrete helps us figure out solutions, control emotions and understand our limits. All people need to create! CuriousMondo livestream courses for free and reach over 27 countries so people can learn how to create. Artist Karen Baker is one of Curious Mondo instructor and helps people create amazing art dolls using polymer clay. She has been sculpting art dolls for over 20 years.

Online Course on Wire Wrapping

This time we start a series of online courses on wire wrapping.

The first one was basic wire wrapping.

Shahar Boyayan and Jakob Jennings were the instructors, Scott Romig the host and the audience loved them.

Six full hours of pure content and a lot of wire wrapped pieces made.

There was a small glitch with the live streaming on the second day but people kept having fun in the chat until things were back to normal. People in the chat made comments that Jakob is so cute and talented and Shahar funny and entertaining. Guess they make a good duo!

Recap on the online course on crochet planned color pooling

Here is a recap on the online course on crochet planned color pooling by Kim Sorensen

This was Kim’s first online course at Curious Mondo and she rocked!

Shahar Boyayan was the host for this course. She tried a little bit of crochet pooling on camera but that didn’t go very far.

She knows so much about crochet pooling and she is so good teaching. People fell in love with her. She got tons of questions and the audience was really excited to get their projects started.

This was not a short tutorial but a 9 hour course. In-depth so people could become masters in planned color pooling

She showed several variations, patterns and styles of planned color pooling. The gifts for the chat drawing were also incredible.
