Beginner Weaving : Weave a Hand Towel

  • Sky Office #1602, 10350 122St Edmonton, Alberta Canada (map)

Weaving is actually pretty easy, it's just the set up that is so darn complicated.  When you come to this class, the majority of the set up will already be done! The looms will be "dressed" and you'll be weaving in no time. That said, the set up is important/necessary and also fascinating so we will spend about an hour going over that process.

PROJECT: Students will weave a twill cotton tea towel using a four harness floor or table loom

DISCUSSION: types of looms, loom anatomy, basic weave structures, project planning, pattern reading, how to wind a warp, how to dress a loom, basic finishing techniques

DEMONSTRATION: condensed version of the warping process, plain and twill weave

PREREQUISITE: None!  This is a beginner class, no experience necessary

NOTE: Class size limited to 4 people.  All materials provided, Lady Craft portrait included. One hour lunch break, lunch NOT provided. Cancellations must be made 72 hours before class date for full refund. Class subject to cancellation if the minimum registration of four people is not met.
