The shortest and simplest weaving class we offer! This class is for people who would like to show up and get straight to work. No heavy theory, just sit down and weave fabric to sew into a cushion!  Geared towards students with no experience, who want to drop in and test drive a loom without taxing their brains with complicated theory.  This class is also great for experienced weavers who simply wish to spend an entire afternoon weaving, without doing the set up. This class is open to young and old, with a minimum height requirement of 4 feet. Students will be introduced to draft reading and the concept of sett.

INSTRUCTOR: Fern ($130)

PROJECT: Students will weave a cotton cushion cover using four shaft and floor looms. Looms will be set up with black cotton warp, with many possible pattern options. On hand will be an abundant variety of weft colours & textures to customize your weaving to your liking. Towards the end of class we will take your weaving off the loom and sew it into a cushion with a zippered backing.

PREREQUISITE: None!  This is an intro class, no experience necessary.
