Weaving Classes

Beginner Weaving

 

Learn to design, warp, dress a loom, and weave a personal project. Using colours while 'painting' a landscape, the warp becomes a personal expression of the student. Confidence is built by creating a new warp each session. A table loom can be taken home so that the student can weave between classes, or the student can weave on a floor loom in the studio outside class time.

 

Intermediate Weaving

 

Individual program for 4 or 8 harnesses whether it be weave structures, colour and design, warping techniques or finger-manipulated, a class will be designed especially for you.

 

Double Weave

 

Weave a couple of layers and explore the magic of double weave and how to manipulate the layers into projects. Very exciting to see what a narrower loom can do to make bigger pieces.  

Rag Rug in a Day
 

This is a great introduction to weaving. Using strips of fabric you will create your own rag rug in a day. The looms are pre-warped and all materials included.

 

Recycled Rag Bag

 

Weave a bag with recycled fabric and other interesting bits!!! Using rags, plastic bags, video and cassette tape (remember those??) to create a sturdy bag for shopping. It takes 32 plastic bags to weave a bag….. All materials are included but feel free to bring more, and don't forget your environmental enthusiasm!
