You are invited to the “A Warping Good Time II” for a 2-day intensive Warping and Weaving Workshop! We will begin, Friday evening, with a basic discussion of weaving including the different weaving methods and when and where each was used. I would like everyone to share the history behind their favorite weaving technique, or ask questions about techniques that interest them. Followed by a hands-on session Saturday morning during which you will focus on warping your loom. Attendees are welcome to bring looms that need warping., or use one of several loaner looms available. Once the looms are warped we will tuck into your weaving. This is where I need participants help. I am willing to offer instruction on Tapestry or Rigid Heddle Weaving. Please make your preference known in your RSVP. Please not we will focus on one or the other according to participant interest. If you have a rigid heddle loom, please know you can use these looms for tapestry weaving as well!
Forthose who are brand new to weaving a Weaving Basics document will beprovided in advance to help you learn basic weaving vocabulary (please request this in your RSVP if you need it). This will allow us to getright to thehands on sessions!
