Introduction to Handloom Weaving with Ilka White 6 week course
Learn to weave your own fabric from scratch. This comprehensive introductory course guides you in the use of a 4 shaft table loom to weave your own cloth. Enjoy the satisfaction of taking yarn right through to finished fabric. We follow the process from choosing yarns and winding a warp to dressing the loom, weaving a series of simple structures, interpreting drafts and employing decorative finishing techniques. You will start by weaving a small sample, then plan and produce a simple article of your own design, (e.g. a scarf, bag, cushion, cloth length or table runner). Sample yarn is provided, along with a full set of notes and use of your own loom for the duration of the course. It’s pretty lovely!
No prior experience required!
Cost: $275 members $295 non members
