Twill Double Weave Blankets
Dates: April 26 - April 30
Cost per ticket: $450
If you have enjoyed making plain weave double width blankets, this class is a logical next step. With an eight-shaft loom, students can weave a number of different twill patterns in double weave, including straight twill, point twill, rosepath, and diamond twills. Students will learn the theory behind the techniques, and will be guided through development of a threading draft for their project. Materials are not included, but will be available for purchase. Students may also choose to bring their own materials.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
For class dates that are full, please feel free to call us here at the studio and have your name place on the wait list.
