Handwoven Wool Tote Bag
Design, weave, and sew your own custom wool tote bag, perfect for all of your north woods adventures. You’ll create a custom bag approximately 15” x 15” x 3”, woven with a basic twill structure. After designing and weaving their wool yardage, students will gain experience fulling their wool cloth to create a sturdy fabric for their tote bag construction. Students will also gain experience sewing with handwoven fabric. Bags will be lined with material purchased by the student, and handles will be sewn from the liner material, or optional leather handles can be purchased from the instructor for an additional fee of $20. There will be numerous options for customizing your creation, including the size, color, pattern choices, addition of pockets, straps/handles, etc. Students should have beginner-level experience warping a floor loom and weaving. Some sewing experience will also be helpful.
Students will need to register by January 1 in order to ensure their preferred yarn color selection. There will be several colorways from which to choose, and there will be additional colors available during class. Once registered, the instructor will contact students regarding the available color choices.
