Join us for Basic Weaving I with Joan Namkoong

New weavers will learn the basics of floor loom weaving: how it works, how to set it up and how warp and weft interlace to create cloth. Basic weaving structures — plain weave, twill, basketweave, how to use different fibers, determining the sett of cloth and how hand woven cloth is made from start to finish are all in this 3 day class.

By the end of class, weavers will have a cotton sampler or a runner to take home. (Student work in photo )

What to bring:

  • $10 supply fee payable to instructor
  • Small scissors
