FW8304 Sept 4, 11, 18, 25, Oct 2, 9, 2018 (5-8pm) 6 Tuesdays (LTB Studio)

Students will learn the basics of weaving on a multi-shaft loom. Beginning students will learn the fundamentals of how a loom operates and will be given the opportunity to sit at a warped loom prior to beginning their own project. From there, students will learn how to read a weaving pattern, how to prepare the warp and how to dress the loom. First-time weavers will begin by weaving a sampler to explore various twill structures. After completing a sampler, students can choose a project based on their own interests. Projects could be anything from towels, to scarves, to woven fabric for a sewing project. Class includes an additional 9 hours of open studio time, allowing students to work on their piece outside of class time. A materials fee of $30 will be added to the tuition.
