Weave a Towel – Intermediate Weaving

TWO-DAY CLASS

Wednesday, February 13, 2019
1:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Thursday, February 14, 2019
9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Tuition: $120 Materials: $30

Come join this class to expand your skills on the use of rigid heddle looms. You will learn to warp a rigid heddle loom for a kitchen towel. That when woven, can result in two different patterns, stripes or plaid.

The first day we will plan and warp your towel pattern. On the second day, you will spend most of the day weaving your towel and then learning to finish the ends. If you have your own loom, feel free to bring it, the recommended heddle size is 10 epi.

Prerequisites: Prior experience on the use of a rigid heddle loom or completion of the Learn to Weave class.

About the instructor: Diane Thomson enjoys many of the fiber arts and learned to weave in high school. She rediscovered weaving in 1985 when she purchased her first loom. She spent most of her weaving time on rag rugs until the 90’s, when she focused on spinning and knitting, which she has since taught at several yarn shops in the Twin Cities and at the Ely Folk School. She currently is offering knitting classes at Sisu Designs Yarn Shop in Ely.
