Join us for Simple Weaving of Interesting Yarns with Pat Steinhoff
Want to weave a scarf or a shawl for yourself, or as a gift for someone special? Maybe a table runner that goes perfectly with your dishes? This is the class for you! Learn to weave and finish a unique wearable garment or table mats and runner on a floor loom.
We meet once a week for 10 weeks to allow ample time to plan and complete one or two projects using simple weaves (plain weave or twill) and interesting yarns. The class runs 5-8 pm to accommodate work schedules. Come and enjoy weaving with a small friendly group while working on your own special project.
For this class we welcome anyone who has taken one or two basic floor loom weaving classes and is ready take the next step. Ideally, students will be able to measure yarns on a warping board and warp a loom independently. Pat will be happy to help with front-to-back warping, which provides extra flexibility for designing at the loom. Experienced students may also choose to warp back to front on their own.
Participants will plan their own projects and select and purchase appropriate yarns after consulting with the instructor. Basic weaving tools are available in the studio, and students may also choose to bring their own supplies. Bring a beverage, snack or quick dinner if desired.
There will be an additional supply fee of $5.00 paid to the instructor on the first day of class for handouts, tape measure and clips, and some special gadgets that we will make in class.
What to Bring
- $5.00 supply fee
- Boat shuttle and bobbins (optional)
- Yarn needle
- Snack and drink (optional)
Pat Steinhoff has been weaving for almost 50 years, and is definitely a “color and texture weaver” rather than a pattern weaver. She makes scarves, shawls, and table runners for her own wearable art and to give as gifts. She also makes items on commission and sells to support her yarn habit of buying yarn whenever she travels. She sometimes makes a wall hanging to enter in a weaving show, but then cuts it up into something functional later on. You can see her work and how she does it at her weaving blog: http://wanderingweaver.wordpress.com
