Inkle Loom Weaving
Inkle looms are a great way to get started with weaving: they require little additional equipment, are easy to use and to understand, and are easily stored. Specially designed to be used for making strong, patterned bands, inkle looms are used for weaving belts, laces, bookmarks, guitar and other instrument straps, leashes—anything that requires strength, durability and beauty. On the first day of class students will warp the loom and learn how to design and weave bands. The second day they will design and weave projects of their own choosing, while learning further ways that the inkle loom can be used. Students will use North House inkle looms or may bring their own loom in good working condition.
