Triangle Loom Weaving: Beginner and Beyond

 

Six-Hour Workshop

Learn to weave on a triangle frame loom with continuous thread, and how to finish and join the triangles.  In this workshop we’ll use a 36” loom to make a child’s shawl or adult scarf.  We’ll have a fashion show of scarves, shawls, ruanas and ponchos to give you ideas.  You’ll learn how to make your own triangle looms in various sizes.  No weaving experience is required.

 For those who already know how to weave on a triangle loom with continuous thread, you have two options: weave with continuous thread in other weaving patterns, such as twill and leno, and experiment with planning colors for plaids; or learn to weave with cut threads in the log cabin pattern.

The leader will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

Bring a sack lunch.

The maximum number of students is 10.  Call the Bailey Cove Library at 256-881-0257 to sign-up.  Open to adults and youth ages 14 and up. The supply fee is $8.
