Beginning Weaving - One Week Intensive

This five-day class covers the same information and project work that is taught in our 6-week beginner class. You will learn the basic techniques of weaving: winding a warp, dressing the loom and weaving at least two projects. Also included will be an exploration of the basic woven structures, plain weave and twills, in their many variations. You will also learn about designing and drafting a project, calculating  yarn requirements, looms and equipment, yarns, and finishing techniques. You will leave this class with the ability to design a project, warp a loom, weave on your own and know where help is readily available. Be prepared to hit the ground running in this fast-paced, fun class!
