Intro to Multi-Shaft Weaving

Intro to Multi-Shaft Weaving

No previous weaving experience needed!
During this intensive class you will learn to warp on a warping board, dress and thread a multi-shaft loom, and weave tabby, twills, lace – and much more! In the process, you will make a set of 4 placemats, 2 sets of coasters (12 total!) and a beautiful lace scarf. Working on an Ashford 4-harness table loom will allow you to gain an understanding of how interlacements can form the gorgeous hand-woven fabric we have all seen and coveted.

Class registration includes the yarn for all class projects.The placemats and coasters will be a study woven in black and natural, with supplemental accent colors available to add to the project. You will have a choice of color for the lace scarf. A “loaner” 4 harness loom will be provided for students for the duration of the class. Students will be responsible for transporting the folding table loom to and from home for project completion.
