FW7401 Oct 24, 31, Nov 7, 28, Dec 5, 12, 2017 (5-8pm) 6 Tuesdays (LTB Studio)

This class offers beginning weavers and advanced beginning weavers the opportunity to learn through direct experience the basic set-up of a multi-shaft floor loom while exploring a variety of weave structures. Every student selects an individual project and works at her/his own pace. With a wide range of projects being worked on during the class, weavers learn from and get inspired by others in the group. Beginning students start with a sampler that introduces the new weaver to the steps of setting up a warp and some basic weaving methods, such as plain weave, twill weave and overshot weave. After completing the first sampler, students choose projects that match their individual interests. Possible second projects include scarves, table runners, pillow covers, shawls and fabric for garments. Class includes an additional 9 hours of open studio time, allowing students to work on their piece outside of class. A materials fee of $30.00 will be added to the tuition.
