Starting July 5, 2011–This workshop is an introduction to the basics of weaving. Using a portable 2-heddle loom (bring your own or purchase one from us), you will learn how to set up a loom with the warp and how to make a plain weave piece in mixed textures or colors. The first project will be a sampler and you will probably be able to complete two projects.
This 4-week session is particularly useful for the newer turner who needs to build their turning skills. In a directed lab format, students will be able to draw upon instructor experience and receive advice and instruction appropriate to their skill and interests.
