Date: Tuesdays, June 4-July 23, 2024
Description: Interested in learning to weave?
Meet the newly extended family of looms at Contemporary Craft!
In this introductory series, students will learn basics of how to use a 4-harness loom and will gain an understanding of some of the cloth structures that can be created on this type of loom. Together, we will go through every step of the process, from measuring yarn through to completed woven cloth! At Contemporary Craft, we have a selection of floor and table looms, offering students the opportunity to experience different physical approaches to dressing the loom (getting the yarn on the loom) and weaving. We will explore the similarities and differences between the looms as we weave samplers exploring different cloth structures.
Students will create a small catalogue of woven samplers and will leave the class with a base from which to plan and design future projects of their own!
No weaving experience expected or necessary.
