April 28, Friday – 1 Day Class
Learn the fundamentals of card weaving with John! This ancient portable weaving technique takes little investment in tools but produces the strongest, most durable, most beautiful bands imaginable for custom camera and guitar straps, belts, and straps for shoulder or carry bags, or facing for a cardigan. We will discuss the basics of reading a draft, warping a loom, and weaving a band with special emphasis on weaving with your handspun yarns. This style of card weaving is straightforward and easy to weave, but allows for very colorful repeating patterns.
If you take Coleen Nimetz’s Silk classes (Spinning down the silk road or the Silk Sampler), this class is a perfect companion. Feel free to bring some of your handspun silk!
No prior weaving experience is necessary.
