Join us for Huck Lace & Open Studio with Mari Macmillan and Sidney Lynch.
Huck, short for huckaback, is a fabric in which small float blocks alternate with small plain weave blocks to produce an endless number of beautiful patterns.
Using 8/2 cotton with a four yard warp, warping back to front, we will weave three 35" long dishtowels, each with a different huck pattern. Huck is easy & quick to weave using only one shuttle. Patterns are created by changing the tie-ups, not the threading. We will leave some room on the warp for sampling.

We are also offering the opportunity for participants to weave their own project during this class instead of following the planned class structure. There have been requests from people to rent a loom. By signing up for this class, you can do whatever you want on the loom with the benefit of being able to come in to the Sunday class time to consult with the instructor about your project. You can weave on your loom throughout the nine-week period at any time there is no other class in session.
This class is designed for intermediate weavers. There will be a $25 supply fee for 8/2 cotton paid to the instructor on the first day of class.
What to Bring
- $25 supply fee
- Notebook and pen/pencil
Wear comfortable clothing.
Mari Macmillan has been weaving for 30 years. Early on, someone told her about "Hi-Tech, Hi-Touch" and she balanced a highly technical medical career in pharmacy with the high touch need to make things completely by hand. She likes to create functional items that show her love of color. Two of her non-functional pieces have been purchased by the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. Many towels have been purchased at the Hui booth at the Kalama Fair in December. Mari also paints.
Sidney Lynch has been weaving for many years and enjoys trying the various weave structures.
