Cost per ticket: $45.00
We’re are living in a good time with lots of fancy tools that make the home weaver’s experience so easy. From the improvements of looms to the shuttles that carry our weft yarn life is good, however too many options can be daunting. Join us as we discuss all the wonderful tools available to weavers and how to decide which are best for you and the fabrics you are creating. Some of the subject areas we will be discussing include temples, shuttles, gadgets warping tools and more. As this is virtual presentation students are strongly encouraged to “bring” to class with them examples of tools you have acquired but are unsure of their uses, as well as questions about the equipment you’ve have suggested to you but are unsure of what to purchase. During our time together we will be showing lots of photographs, performing live demonstrations and links to suggested resources. Join us and clear up those lingering questions to be the most confident and prepared weaver you can be.
