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. By Bea Bonanno.

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. Your project yarn can be purchased on the first day. By Susan Bateman.

INTERMEDIATE RIGID HEDDLE WEAVING
NOTE: The weaving class listed below is designed for those who can independently dress and weave on a rigid heddle loom or have taken the Beginning Rigid Heddle class.
PLAN-A-PROJECT ON THE RIGID HEDDLE LOOM
How do you go from an idea to a beautiful woven piece? We will discuss how to select materials and determine sett, warp the loom, and begin weaving a project of your very own design! You will need to bring your own fully assembled rigid heddle loom that is in good working condition to class. If you’ve never woven on a rigid heddle loom or if it has been a few years, please take a Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving class before enrolling in this class. You may need to purchase an additional heddle for class depending on the type of yarn you choose for your project. By Bea Bonanno.

INTERMEDIATE HARNESS WEAVING
NOTE: The weaving class listed below is designed for those who have threaded a 4-harness loom, can follow a draft and weave independently.
Some of our favorite weave structures are ones that use 2-shuttles. Not only will you learn this new technique, but also about 3 different structures and make 3 hand towels as well in 3 different threading drafts. We will have looms dressed, ready to go in Overshot, Color-and-Weave, and Shadow Weave. You will learn how to keep track of the weft and treadling sequences while managing 2 shuttles and 2 colors or sizes of yarn. This intermediate class is a round robin weaving class. You need to have woven on a 4-harness loom before and understand how to read threading drafts. Materials and pre-warping included. By Susan Bateman.
