Basic Triangle Loom Plain Weaving
Description: This 4 hour workshop will introduce you to the joys of weaving with a continuous strand of yarn. NO WARPING! NO WEFTING! NO HIGHER MATH. The attendee will work with a provided mini-triloom and finish at least 2 triangles with provided yarns. If time allows, the class will cover ways to finish edges. This is a lighthearted workshop and is meant to open minds to this non-traditional weaving technique. Note: A loom will be provided to each student to complete the project in class, however, if the student wishes to purchase the loom, the costs is $25 and can be purchased from the teacher at the end of the class. The mini-triangle looms are 12" on the hypotenuse side, made out of wood & small headed nails by a local woodworker. The finished triangles can make bandana necklaces; 2 can become a poncho for a doll or a square, 4 a purse or a rectangle. The shapes are like puzzle pieces making scarves, valances, jackets, shawls, hats, blankets - limited only by the imagination.
