WEAVING CLASSES

 

BEGINNING WEAVING CLASSES

Our beginning weaving classes are designed for students who are brand new to weaving.  These classes will provide you with the knowledge on how to identify the parts of a loom, dress a loom, and weave a novice project. 

 

 BEGINNING RIGID HEDDLE WEAVING

If you like color and texture, then weave with the simple rigid heddle loom.  You will learn a fast way to thread the loom and then weave a scarf.  We will provide a loom to use during class, but if you want to bring your own, be sure it is complete, assembled, and in good working condition with an 8- or 7.5-dent heddle.  Materials not included.

BEGINNING HARNESS WEAVING

Learn all you need to know to start weaving independently on a four-harness floor loom. Warp, weft, sett, epi, ppi, draft, tie-up and more are weaving terms you will learn.  You will measure your warp, thread the loom, learn to read threading drafts, and weave a sampler of several different patterns.  You don’t need your own loom, students use our classroom looms and equipment.  Your project yarn can be purchased on the first day.

BACK TO BASICS—Warping Review

Do you feel like you need a quick refresher course on how to dress your loom?  If you have not done much weaving since you took the Beginning Harness Weaving class and want to review your skills, this is your chance to wind a warp, thread the loom front to back, beam on, and tension.  When you have completed this process, you will re-tie your porrey cross and put the warp back into a chain to take home and repeat the process on your own loom.  Repeat to reinforce!   You will need 2-3 colors of 3/2 perle cotton yarn for class.  By Katie Werner.
