Let’s Start Weaving – Beginner Weaving Class (2 x 4.5 hours)

loomCost: $ 250.00 Cdn

Students will start with an introduction to weaving – weaving terminology, tools, and types of looms. The next step will be to learn about yarns and how to prepare a warp. Each student will prepare a cotton warp for sampling. Warps will then be prepared and put on the loom. Before starting the actual weaving an overview of correct weaving practices will be covered.

Once the looms are warped, students will create samples of the basic 4 shaft weaves. The sample will be finished in a knotted fringe on one end and hemstitched on the other end. This sample will be cut off and students will learn a quick way to cut and retie. Two double weave samples will then be created. Proper finishing techniques, a review, and discussion on next projects will be presented. If time permits students can try out a floor loom. This class is intended for beginners.
