Beginning Weaving -- Not Currently Offered

dressed loomIn this introduction to the 4-shaft loom, students will learn basic weaving techniques using floor and table looms. Most materials are included in the class fee, although personal favorite fibers or cloth strips may be included in a project. Students will discuss the relationship of both warp and weft textures along with color selection. They will learn to warp and operate the loom and to explore several finishing techniques for their project. Selected loom-controlled patterns will allow for the creation of a sampler, scarf, placemat, or a small rag rug. Students will weave and create at their own pace, so more than one item may be possible. Looms are available for students' independent use anytime the building is open.
