A continuation of Basic Weaving I – students will set up their own project under the supervision of the instructor. Upon registering for this class, participants should contact the Joan via email to discuss a project – scarf, runner, napkins or towels to be setup in plain weave, twill or basketweave. In class, students will measure a warp, dress the loom and weave their project.

By the end of class, weavers will have their one-of-a-kind project to take home.
