Did you say 2 heddle towels… no problem! Dish towels, tea towels, bread clothes and more are completely feasible with this class. If you’ve been in the weaving world for even a little while, you know how popular weaving towels are among weavers. As a rigid heddle weaver though, you may have felt frustrated or limited in your ability to create those fine and drapey towels you’ve admired. You know the ones where the threads are fine enough that you are required to use 2-heddles and that’s where you’ve stopped the planning or dreaming. Well not any longer! Now is the time to finally take the plunge and stand up to those fears.
In this course Sara will guide you through the planning process where you will be given suggestions for materials, learn how to calculate for a desired width and length as well as some design and color theory pointers. Students will also be taken through the warping process from start to finish and then guided through the weaving process. Students are encouraged to bring their own loom for this class with all required two-heddle equipment. This class will be building on basic fundaments skills so students must have a working knowledge and experience on the rigid heddle loom.
Materials are not included with tuition. Students may bring threads from home, or purchase they may be purchased from the store here on campus.
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.
