Session 2

The best way to become comfortable warping a floor loom is frequent repetition. This in-depth intro to weaving guides students through planning, warping and weaving three towels on three separate short warps, while learning about choosing fibers and colors, how looms and weaving equipment work, efficient warping, proper weaving technique and wet-finishing handwoven textiles. 

In session 2, students will weave a striped, straight-twill cotton towel on a 4-shaft floor loom. Subjects include a review of yarn selection, yarn calculations, front-to-back warping and wet finishing. New information includes how twill works and differs from plain weave, winding a warp with stripes and weaving/stitching a hem. We’ll also fine-tune weaving techniques, including minimizing draw-in and beating consistently.

Note: For beginners, Karen recommends taking all three sessions in succession. However, it is possible to take only one or two of the three-class sessions, with appropriate experience. Please contact Karen to discuss options. Karendonde@gmail.com

Materials fee: 10.00 which includes all material, yarn and handouts
