This is an initial class which is designed to give the students a thorough understanding of the process of hand weaving. You will learn fundamental weaving skills, such as warp calculations, direct warping onto the Cricket rigid heddle loom, forming appropriate yarn choices for both warp and weft, and basic weaving techniques. The aim of the class is to not only cover an assortment of techniques, but to give one the confidence and skill to design and weave a successful project going forward.
Looms, equipment and materials are included. Maximum 4 students.
Beverages and light refreshments will be provided. Bring lunch.
Purchase of a 15” Cricket loom is optional, and can be purchased no later than 3 weeks prior to this class, in which case we will assemble your loom for you to weave on during the class. The cost of the loom is $210 plus tax.
