Beginning Floor Loom Weaving
Do you want to explore weaving? This class lets you discover the fun and creativity of the craft! Learn the fundamentals, starting with basic weaving vocabulary and graduating to preparing a warp, warping a loom, and reading a draft. The instructor will guide you through a basic project and students will complete a wool scarf or a cotton table runner in plain weave or twill. This class is taught by Carol Johnson of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, who has been weaving since the 1990s using tablets, rigid heddle and floor looms, and is co-founder of Studio Tupla.
