Friday 5pm- 7pm Wine, Cheese & Trunk Show
The rigid-heddle loom is easy to warp, move around, and more versatile than many people think. In this short session, see how to warp a rigid-heddle loom in twenty minutes or less and examples of a wide variety of cloth that the rigid-heddle loom can produce. No material fee.
Ready to branch out from solid-colored warps? Learn a few fundamental techniques for combining colors in warp and weft using the direct warping method. We will learn a variation of the direct warping method, be introduced to the magic of color-and-weave, and learn how to manage multiple shuttles.
Saturday Night: Warping Party
We will provide dinner at the shop and host a weaving session after dinner
You’ll need a fresh loom to start the next day of class so let’s finish up together. Liz will stick around to help.
Weaving the Perfect Towel
Towels are the weaver’s muse. They are the perfect platform to show off all kinds of colorwork, structural elements, and style. We will learn what makes a good towel, how to weave with fine threads to create a textile that has drape, absorbency, and pizzazz.
