Sampler Weaving Class
March 12 & 13, 11:00-3:00
Advanced class: In this class you will have the opportunity of learning different rigid heddle weaving techniques, from using pick-up sticks for warp and weft face weaves, twinning, clasped-weft, finger-controlled weaving, leno lace, an alternative to plain hem stitching and more. Your finished project will measure approximately 9" x 19" including fringe.
Supplies: a rigid heddle with a 10 dent reed, pick-up sticks, scissors, tapestry needle and a #13 straight knitting needle. Bring your own loom or use one of ours.
Your loom will need to be warped prior to class. Joan will email everyone with instructions on warping sequence. You will need a light sport weight yarn, white or off-white, and a second color (light grey, light brown, light blue, etc.) for the warp. Please bring your extra warp yarn as we will use it also. You may bring any scrap yarn in any weight or color, the more variation the better. Joan has an abundance of scrap yarn she will bring and extra needles to loan out.
Should you decide you want to twist your fringe, we will have fringe twisters available to use in class. You will also receive a hanger for your completed project. Should you need to order any supplies, you will receive a 15% discount. If you need loom supplies, please let us know at least a 1-1.5 weeks before class so we can get them ordered. This is an advanced weaving class, you must have weaving experience.
