Beginning Weaving Class

sampler-blackwhiteThis class is for the beginner weaver who has never tried out a loom or a great review for someone who would like a refresher course.

Each student will create a Twill Sampler on a four harness loom.  The sampler when finished will show over 50 different variations of twill patterns in one setup. Using black and white yarn the sampler becomes a valuable study for future reference.

During the class the students will learn to:

  1. Measure yarns, calculating how much yarn will be needed for projects, figure out the threads per inch and other formulas.
  2. Read a pattern draft and learn to create one.
  3. Set up loom, thread the loom and connect the peddles.
  4. Learn techniques on how to weave once project is on the loom
  5. Finishing techniques once a piece is woven.

Class is open for 5 students. Cost $250.00
