Intermediate Weaving: Technique Sampler

65.00

Date: Sundays, June 11 and 18 (meets twice), 10:30 am to 1 pm

Pre-Requisite: Intro to Traditional Weaving (if you feel like you have enough experience with a rigid heddle loom to waive this pre-requisite, contact us).

In two sessions, we’ll try a bit of each of a series of weaving techniques to create a sampler on the Schacht Cricket rigid heddle loom. Techniques will include the following:

  • Hem stitching at beginning and end
  • Warp floats
  • Weft floats
  • Lace
  • Adding a third dimension
  • Soumak
  • Embroidery/needlework on the loom
  • Fringe techniques

You'll be encouraged to bring a variety of materials to play with and share with other students, and you'll get instructions before the class on setting up the loom. You'll need to show up to the first class with your loom already properly warped.

Materials: You will need to warp your loom ahead of class with a 2.5 yard warp. If you need to borrow a loom, please contact us to make arrangements. Student assumes full responsibility for loom and replacement cost in case of damage.
