Exploring Color and Texture: Beginning Floor Loom Weaving

Course Overview

In this introductory weaving course we will bravely learn how to warp and weave on a floor loom. Amber will share her own creative process and techniques using traditional overshot weaving patterns. Through experimentation with color and texture, we will all create our own rainbow of vibrant patches. In the second half of the course students will stitch their own patches to a special cloth (perhaps a favorite garment, blanket, bedding, etc.) of their choosing. Amber will share her fiber artworks and teach the various handwork methods for achieving these effects. Through the act of hand-stitching together we will imbue cloth with our own mark-making language. We will be able to take home a piece of our time learning at the loom and our memory of the new friendships we have created together on the beautiful North Shore.
