Beginner Weaving: Be guided through your first weaving project on a multi-shaft floor loom. Learn about warping, threading the loom, reading weaving drafts, and basic weaving structures. Explore these topics via a twill sampler project. Beginner friendly/no experience required.
Experimental Weaving: Play on the loom in this intuitive approach to creating fabric. Learn about supplementary weft (also known as inlay) to create projects that experiment with color, texture, and image. This technique creates a fabric that has a front and a back. Participants will learn how to calculate warp and weft needs, and set up an eight shaft loom in a straight draw pattern. Beginner friendly/no experience required.
See examples of this technique under work>supplementary weft!
Beginner Tapestry: Learn all about tapestry weaving on a handheld frame loom and build a vocabulary of color, shape, and texture. Learn about tapestry-specific weaving techniques and terminology, yarn choices, and more as you ease into this meditative form of expression. Beginner friendly/no experience required.
See examples of this technique under work>weft faced!
Doublecloth Pickup: Learn how to make images using this loom and hand-manipulated technique. Participants will learn how to set up the loom for doublecloth and will focus on creating images using a drawing on graph paper as a guide. Intermediate/some experience required: parts of the loom, how to thread a loom, winding warps, common weaving terminology.
