Join us for Basic Weaving I with Joan Namkoong
This class is designed for new weavers who want to understand how to set up a loom. Joan will explain how warp and weft interlace, and she will teach participants how to thread a straight draw and execute basic weaving structures like plain weave, basketweave and twill. Students will learn to determine the sett of a fiber, measure a warp and dress the loom to make it ready for weaving.
By the end of class, weavers will have a cotton sampler or a runner to take home.
There will be an additional $10 supply fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class.
