Learn to weave on an inkle loom, which can be used to make narrow bands.  In class you can make a bookmark, hatband, strap or small pouch, depending on how much time you want to spend.  Begin to learn the language of weaving.

The inkle looms will be ready to use when you arrive, and you’ll learn how to dress an inkle loom.  No weaving experience is required. 

The leader will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop. 

Bring a sack lunch.

Supply fee:  $6. Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up. Read more about Introduction to Weaving Bands With the Inkle Loom

Learn to weave on a triangle frame loom with continuous thread, and how to finish and join the triangles.  In this workshop we’ll use a 36” loom to make a child’s shawl or adult scarf.  We’ll have a fashion show of scarves, shawls, ruanas and ponchos to give you ideas.  You’ll learn how to make your own triangle looms in various sizes.  No weaving experience is required.

For those who want a shorter workshop, spend three hours and use a 21” loom to make a neckerchief. 
 
For those who already know how to weave on a triangle loom with continuous thread, you have two options: weave with continuous thread in other weaving patterns, such as twill and leno, and experiment with planning colors for plaids; or learn to weave with cut threads in the log cabin pattern.

Bring your own yarn, or I’ll supply yarn for a $6 fee.  For the 36” loom, bring 150 yards of yarn for a one-strand weaving and fringe, or bring 300 yards total of two or more yarns for a two-strand weaving and fringe.  For the 21” loom, bring 62 yards of yarn for a one-strand weaving and fringe, or bring 124 yards total of two or more yarns for a two-strand weaving and fringe.  For your first weaving, bring a firm worsted weight yarn.  (Do not bring fuzzy novelty yarns.)

The leader will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

Bring your own triangle looms if you like.  If your loom is larger than the 36-inch looms provided for use in class, bring your own yarn and you will probably have to finish your work at home.

Bring a sack lunch.
Supply fee: $6, you may sign up at the front desk at Bailey Cove Library. Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up. Read more about Triangle Loom Weaving: Beginner and Beyond
