|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Thursday, repeating until April 6, 2023

Make a weaving sampler of various weave structures from start to finish under the guidance of an experienced instructor on a 4 harness, 6 treadle floor loom.

Beginners will make a sampler using yarn belonging to the guild.

In this 4 session class, students will be taught:

  • How to calculate and wind a warp
  • How to put the warp on the loom (dress the loom)
  • What the many different parts of a floor loom are and the weaving terminology that goes with it
  • How to understand yarn weights and what kind of yarn is good for warp and weft
  • The many different kinds of looms available to weave on
  • All the different weaving tools needed (and desired!) to weave
  • How to weave many structures and designs, including color and weave
  • How to read weaving drafts
  • Tips, tricks and troubleshooting
  • And  finishing techniques

This is a deep dive into beginning weaving and will a solid foundation to go out into the world and weave on your own! Of course, a membership in the guild will also help with that.

Class dates are weekly (4 weeks):

March 16, 23, 30 & April 6 from 9:00 – 11:30 am
