Expand your band weaving with a variety of patterns, materials, and techniques. Start this pattern-packed week by working together to set up looms and weave samples in a round-robin. Examine design elements in plain-weave bands and use advanced techniques including pickup, rep, beading, tubular weaving, and more. Complete a notebook of a dozen drafts and samples, then explore your favorites with additional projects. Prior band weaving experience is recommended and students must be able to warp an inkle loom.
Start by picking colors, and finish by proudly wearing and modeling your own handwoven scarf! In a weekend, you’ll set up the loom, weave, and finish your scarf, with optional bead embellishment. No experience is necessary. Beginners are encouraged to try their hands – and feet – at this wonderful craft!
