Weaving on a Triangular Loom
April 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Learn to do continuous weave on a 40-inch triangular loom to make a small shawl that can be worn as a cowl. Several finishing options will be demonstrated. Other weaving techniques such as bias weaving and cut strand weaving will be shown for future weaving projects on your own. Four hours should be enough time to complete the project but students that are not done will have the information to complete later, on their own. The loom is yours to keep and enjoy! This workshop sold out in 48 hours at the infamous Twist Fibre Festival.
