Limited Capacity seats available

If you’ve already mastered plain weave, and completed a few projects, you are ready to move up to the next level. In this class, you will learn how to add new decorative elements to your projects, and explore more intricate patterns. 

First, we will focus on hand-manipulated techniques such Danish Medallions, Brook’s Bouquet, Leno, and Clasped Weft. We will then move on to learning how to use a pick up stick to add some interesting pattern possibilities. 

Level:  Intermediate

A portion of this class is being kindly underwritten by Vivid Fiber Arts (www.vividfiberarts.com)

Students must bring: 

Loom: In order to maximize our learning time, you will be pre-warping and bringing your own rigid heddle loom to class. There will be tables, but you are free to bring a stand if you have one, or if you normally use your lap, that’s fine too. If you normally use some way to anchor your loom to the table (clamps, anti-skid shelf liner) bring that as well. We will be working no larger than 8” wide, so even the smallest looms will be more than adequate. As for heddle size, anything from a 7.5- 10 is fine; most small looms come with a 7.5 or 8 dent rigid heddle included. 

Yarn: Smooth, strong, yarn with low elasticity in a weight appropriate for your heddle size. Cotton, linen, tencel or any kind of blend are good picks. Yardage estimates will be detailed in student pre-class handout.

Other:  stick shuttle (at least one), pick up stick, crochet hook, yarn, and needle
