BEGINNING WEAVING ON A LITTLE LOOM
 
Instructor: Terri Veragen
Class Description:  
Have you always wanted to try your hand at weaving? Rigid heddle looms are a simple and inexpensive introduction to weaving. In part one of this class you will learn how a rigid heddle loom works, what you can do with it, how to calculate how much yarn you need, and how to warp your loom with even tension and get started weaving. In part two, you will learn how to weave with good selvedges and an even beat, change colors and work with different yarns, fix a broken warp, different finishes for the end of your weaving, and how to remove your weaving and finish your cloth. We will discuss the various weave structures that are possible on these looms.
 
We will have looms available (Schacht Crickets, Ashford Sample-It and Knitter's Looms, etc). You may bring your own small loom if you have one. You will leave with a small sampler.

Date and Time:  Part 1 May 9 1-4,  Part 2 May 24 10 -1
Cost: $100.00 for both parts. Materials Fee $10.00
          You may take the classes as single classes. The cost for each class as a single 
           is $60.00. If you have a loom, please bring all the parts, shuttles, clamps,                  etc.  If you do not have a loom, we will provide one and you may rent one to            take home for practice in between parts 1 and 2 for $25.00 for the interval              in between classes. The rental will apply to the purchase of a loom if you                  decide to purchase one within a month of your last class.
