Create a cozy triangle scarf to ward off the chill on those long winter nights! Artist Crystal Kitchens is back in Madison with another fabulous class using the traditional technique of hand weaving. This triangle loom technique is like "magic" and require no previous experience.  With just one stroke, you make the warp and weave the weft.

First-time weavers will learn to make a triangle loom in various sizes, weave with continuous thread, and finish and join the triangles. Repeat weavers have a few options: weave patterns, experiment with colors for plaids or weave with cut thread in the log cabin pattern.

Join us at Madison Public Library on Friday, January 28, 2011 from 9am-3pm. A supply fee of $6 is due on the day of the event. Space is limited to 10 students ages 14 and up. Bring a sack lunch! Sign up now at 256.461.0046 with Sarah ssledge@hmcpl.org or Mary Kate mquillivan@hmcpl.org. Read more about Triangle Loom Weaving @ Madison

Tap into your hidden personal talent under the instruction of artist Crystal Kitchens to make a round basket! Learn the necessary skill to handle basket reed, start a round basket and shape it into your personal handmade creation.
