Weave & basic weaving too!
A mixed-level 6-session class where new weavers will learn the magic of weaving... how to measure a warp, dress the loom and weave a beautiful sampler using basic threading and a variety of treadling patterns. More experienced weavers will deeply focus on double weave by making a complex double weave sampler. Double weave means twice the width, twice the layers and more! Students may design and weave a project in double weave following their sampler study if time allows. Materials fee for sampler warps $5. Weft and project costs will vary. 4 & 8 shaft looms available courtesy of the Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts.
