Learn to Weave for your Closet
Students will learn about weaving including a brief history, weave structures, how to read a simple weaving draft, wind a warp, and thread a loom. They will design a scarf or shawl which they will weave on 4 harness floor loom. Students will also weave samples exploring color and other treadlings. Several different finishing techniques will be taught. For those with prior weaving experience and wanting to re-fresh, patterning such as lace or twill will be explored. The class will be taught by experienced weavers from the Northwoods Fiber Guild (based in Grand Marais) allowing for individual attention.
