Join us for Inkle Loom Band Weaving with Barbara Long.
Come play with color and yarn while learning to thread and weave on provided inkle loom. We will briefly discuss history and uses of band weaving and move on to color, design, threading and weaving with colors of your choice from the studio and instructor's stash. Colors are the stars in inkle weaving. Looms may be taken home allowing students to make multiple projects during the class. Given time and interest, we will also cover pickup patterns and finishing options, including use of hardware. Students will leave with completed band(s), instructions for warping and weaving, and a resource list for exploring further.
Dress comfortably, if you are easily chilled, bring a sweater as the room is air conditioned. All supplies are included in the price of the class.
What to bring:
- Drink (closed container) and a snack for break
Barbara's interest in the magic of turning simple threads into fabric is life long. She especially enjoys small and simple tools, color, and seeing eyes light up in others as they discover the delight of creating objects fun and beautiful with thread.
