Been away from weaving for a bit and need a refresher to get you going again? Need some motivation to get going on the next project? Then join us for this hands-on workshop! Each student will wind a 3-yard warp for a project of their choice (400 ends or less). The class will focus on winding for even tension, creating the cross, how to track thread counts, and where to place choke ties to tame the warp when it comes off the warping board. Threading with 2 ends at once will also be discussed. Participants will choose from a few selected WEBS drafts. There will still be time to weave a holiday gift!
Prerequisite: Students must already know how to weave on a multi-harness loom. Instructor: Leslie Ann Bestor Date: Saturday, 9/27/14 Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm Materials Required:
