In this six week course we will learn every step of beginning weaving on a floor loom including designing a warp with multiple colors, dressing the loom back to front, and exploring weaving in both plain weave and twill structures. You will learn weaving terminology, how to calculate quantities of yarn needed for a project, how to plan warp dimensions, and gain an overview of finishing techniques. By the end of the class you will leave with “color and weave” cloth samples and either a set of dishtowels, placemats, or a scarf. You will have a solid foundation for weaving on your own after the class. Students will provide their own additional materials for this course as needed.
