Class: Intro to Multi-Shaft Weaving
This is a two day class. The class will meet at the same time on two consecutive days.
Level: Absolute Beginner
Instructor: Kennedy Berry
If you are looking to learn to weave on a floor loom or multi-shaft loom this class is the place to start! We will go through the process from calculating and winding your warp through setting up the loom and beginning to weave.
Skills we’ll cover:
Calculating Sett, Warp and Weft for your project
Winding your Warp and setting it up on your loom using the front-to-back warping technique
Reading a simple pattern draft
Weaving in tabby (plain weave) and basic twills
(1) 150 g of Blue Sky Woolstok in a main color
(3-5) 50g hanks or 1 mini-skein bundle of Blue Sky Woolstok in colors that contrast your main color
Rental of a 15” 4-shaft table loom is included in the class price. Looms can be checked out for 2-weeks after the class, so you have plenty of time to finish your project. If you have your own loom you wish to use instead, please check with the instructor to be sure it is suitable for class.
Due to COVID-19 we are requiring proof of Vaccination upon coming to class.
