Beginning Weaving Class

Beginning Weaving Class

In our 5-day Beginning Weaving Class, students learn everything they need to know in order to design and weave simple, but beautiful weavings with a plain colored warp on a treadle loom. The course includes instruction in loom setup (winding a warp and tying it on), planning and designing the colors and yarns of your weaving, weaving techniques on a Rio Grande Style floor loom, and mending and finishing your piece.

In addition to instructor-led, hands-on learning, each student will also receive a classroom workbook with historical background, weaving terminology, and practical instructions to be used as a guide during the class and beyond.

  • All weaving equipment and instruction are included in the class price. Warp threads will be supplied on the looms. However, weft materials – the colored yarns you will be using to create your design – will need to be purchased on-site, with two different weights to choose from: rug (heavier weight) or blanket (lighter weight).

  • Students are welcome to browse the Tierra Wools yarn selection once they arrive on site. If you’d like to get an idea of the color selection beforehand, you can also visit the website of Shepherd’s Lamb, our local partner and yarn supplier. Click here to visit Shepherd’s Lamb.
