Clasped Weft for Floor Loom or Rigid Heddle
Dates: May 11 - May 12
Cost per ticket: $325
This course has been designed for those weavers who are looking for a more organic approach to adding visual texture to their woven fabrics. In this class students will be introduced to a technique of weaving that utilizes 2 separate shuttles of yarn that intersect with one another within the shed to create one-of-a-kind patterning you as the weaver control. Students will gain insight into planning a project using clasped weft, appropriate applications, and tips/tricks to control your yarns to complete a scarf or pillow. All materials are included with tuition, but students are encouraged to bring interesting yarns from their own stash.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
