In this six session course, participants will learn to weave on a 4 shaft loom. We will learn weaving vocabulary, how to select materials, design a project, and finish our newly woven cloth. We will also explore global weaving traditions and discuss sources of inspiration for weavers. After creating a sampler, students will have guidance from the instructor in designing and weaving a unique scarf. This course is an introduction to hand weaving and is also ideal for those looking to refresh their skills. Course fee covers materials for the sampler; students will supply materials for their final project. No prior weaving experience necessary. Some materials required.
*Effective immediately (January 20, 2023) all loom rentals and borrowing of weaving equipment have been suspend temporarily due to operational requirements.*
