Wild Weaving on a Small Loom
Description: STASH Buster! Students will learn how to weave a cowl or a wallhanging on the loom. We will use handspun or leftover yarn from projects to weave a one of a kind item. Yarn, bits of fabric, angelina, and ribbon will be incorporated. This is a Show Stopper and will be your fave thing to wear and show off. Further embellishment with beads and trinkets that students bring will be added in finishing. Janis will bring her own Cowl of the Wild samples and her magazine article to share & inspire. Instructor will be weaving on the Ashford Knitters Loom. Students need to own a rigid heddle loom no bigger than 30” and as small as 10” wide. 4 looms will be available for rental in class for a small fee. Article written for Ashford’s Magazine “The Wheel” 2018.

Supplies Student Should Bring to Class: Stashbuster! Bring a small bag of your leftovers from other projects that kind of go together. Bits of ribbon or fabric, found objects or broken jewelry to add style to your unique piece. If you have a little something to serve as the top, like a small piece of driftwood, metal or found object….. Bring it to class! Bring a small frame loom or tapestry loom if you have one.
