Love lining things up and working in a meditative way?

Learn to weave on the simplest loom, the Ashford Knitter’s Loom. Over the course of three weeks you will create a sampler that explores a number of materials and techniques.

Techniques covered:

  • preparing the loom for weaving (putting on a warp)

  • choosing materials

  • using a stick shuttle

  • introductory plain weave techniques (including interlocking, inlay, stripes/plaids, rya)

  • basic pick up stick patterns

  • finishing techniques

Bring the loom home between classes to practice techniques learned in class. Some materials are included as well as a 10% discount on yarns and looms purchased through the studio while enrolled.
