Beginning Floor Loom Weaving

$220

with Christine Stanton

Calendar Jan 8, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 9 weeks

Weaving classes, which meet once a week on Tuesdays, are comprised of students at all levels of weaving experience.

In Winter Quarter, we’ll study boundweave, a weft faced weave that can be woven on any of several threadings.  The sett, choice of yarns, and color of the various yarns determine the design along with treadling. “Treadling is a simple sequence with rhythmical repeats.  The patterning is often just a color and weave effect and depends only on which color is laid in a particular shed.”  We will plan to use rug warp yarn for warp and wool for weft.  But fabric strips could also be used for weft. Fabrics from this technique are good for rugs, bags, pillows, and some clothing. Beginning level students will have a choice of weaving a scarf or table runner using yarns supplied by Callanwolde. 

Instructors are Christine Stanton and Lynn Pollard

Payment plan available: $75 deposit plus 2 payments of $72.50, paid every four weeks
