Now that you have gotten a taste for weaving, are you interested in learning more? This 2-day weaving class will reinforce the steps you learned in Part I. You will have an opportunity to wind another warp, dress the loom, build on the knowledge of reading and interpreting drafts, and learn more weave structures.
This class will be a round robin. Under the guidance of the instructor, each student will thread a loom to a different weave structure. Among the weave structures will be twill, overshot, huck lace, or rose path. Although threading only one of the weave structures, you will have the opportunity to weave on the other looms, thereby going home with a sample of each of them along with the instructions. Bring a lunch.
Level: Completed Beginning Weaving on a Floor Loom - Part I
