About this event

Have you ever wanted to learn how to weave? In this 5 week class, you will go from total novice to Beginning Weaver. By the end of the class, students will know how to set up a loom, weave the cloth and ways to finish it. Basic weave structures, types of yarn, fiber properties, weaving terminology, equipment, and other related topics will be covered. The first project will be a sampler exploring basic weave structures.

The Club has several four-harness looms that students can use. There are both floor looms and table looms available. They're all from different manufacturers, and a couple of them are handmade. A big part of the class is learning how to set up the warp or “dress” a loom.

Supplies and basic tools are provided.

Class meets on Tues. evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.

Dates: May 16, 23, 30, June 6, 13, 2023

Class size: minimum 3 students to run class, maximum 6 students
