Part II - Going Beyond Your First Project (1/2 Day)
Now that you’ve been introduced to weaving, this next class will give you the tools to design and weave on your own.
Woven Fabric Strip Table Runner Workshop
This is a great cross-over class for quilters. In this day and a half workshop, beginners and experienced weavers are welcome. Rigid Heddle Looms will be provided or bring your own at least 15 inches wide. Learn to weave using fabric strips. Take home a finished table runner with your choice of fabric. This is a great way to use your fabric stash or consider it a good excuse to buy a beautiful jelly roll of your favorite colors.
Rigid Heddle Weaving Technique Classes
Log Cabin/Color & Weave Effect Scarf
Learn the magic of color and weave. By alternating dark and light threads you will learn to manipulate the design to create log cabin blocks. We will look at other ways to create patterns with this technique as well.
Do you struggle with where to start in choosing colors and pleasing color combinations for your weaving projects? In this class we’ll explore the color wheel and how colors interact in woven cloth. We’ll set up and begin weaving a scarf using the hues of the color wheel. You’ll see firsthand how visually the colors change where the weft crosses the warp in the final woven cloth. The outcome will be a scarf you can wear.
Zoom Loom Classes
In this 3-4 hour class we’ll learn how to weave squares on a zoom loom and make a flower pin which we'll embellish with beads or buttons. Looms are provided.
In the first class you will learn how to weave squares on a Zoom Loom/pin loom and begin weaving the squares. You will return with your squares finished for the final wrap up session. You'll learn how to sew the squares together and be introduced to the many ways you can use these squares in other projects.
