Description: Think plain weave is boring? Not really! This workshop will explore the plain weaves and related structures. We will also explore the effects of color, fiber thickness, and sheen. The workshop will have looms set up with examples and then I will turn you loose to weave on each loom. At the end of the workshop, you will walk away with a sample set that includes everything we’ve talked about. This course is meant for anyone with a beginner’s knowledge of weaving that includes setting up a loom, and reading a draft.
All Yarn, looms, and handouts will be supplied.
