1 Day Class
Have you been wanting to use your handspun for weaving? Do you have a fiber that you know would make a beautiful woven fabric but aren’t sure where to begin? I’m happy to help. Join me while I share my thought processes when I’m working on a new weaving project.
In this class you choose a fiber from your stash that you would love to spin for weaving and I will help you make that happen. We will talk about twist and how much is necessary and how to decide. We will talk about plying and how different numbers of plies change the fabric. We will make lots of yarn samples and then make a small fabric sample to see the results.
At the same time we will talk about how to translate all of this to your loom at home and how to make woven samples and why they are important. We will discuss how to finish your cloth to make it ready for its end use.
Materials Fee: $0
Level: Students should be able to spin a single and ply.
