Class : Handweaving a Towel Collection Sep 12-16, 2022

Learn to make the most out of dressing your loom once, by designing in the tie up and in the treadling patterns. Twills are one of the most versatile structures in weaving, where with a little bit of preparation and design one can come up with a unique collection of patterns all from the same threading! As a towel production weaver, Tegan Frisino has learned how to make the most out of each warp and keep things interesting as she goes. Participants will make a diverse set of hand towels, exploring how they can make each one unique depending on the modifications they make in the draft. Those attending must be comfortable dressing the loom independently.

Class: Keep Me Warm: Weaving a Paneled Blanket Oct 03-07, 2022

THROW-004-004-HIGH

This class is designed for those who like to weave big things! Blankets are a great way to extend weaving skills to a larger scale. In this class participants will learn how to design, weave, and finish a paneled blanket. Paneling is a technique where long yardage is woven, cut apart, and the edges are sewn together to make a blanket double (or triple!) your loom width. Tegan uses this technique often when creating complex patterns for queen and king sized beds. Everyone will go home with experience weaving yardage, pattern matching, and paneling a cotton blanket.
