Learn how to warp a loom and weave cloth of your own design in this comprehensive weaving class. All the steps from designing the warp, measuring the threads, winding the warp and threading the loom through weaving and finishing will be covered. Students will weave on table looms to create a scarf or runner in their choice of colors, textures, and patterns. There will be time enough to complete the entire process, guided by a professional weaver and teacher.
This workshop is made possible by an Arts Project Grant from the Indiana Arts Commission and by the sponsorship of the Working Men’s Institute. There will be no fee for the classes, just a commitment to attend all sessions of this unique learning & arts experience. Instructor for the class is Peggy Taylor, of the Raintree Cottage Textile School in New Harmony. Equipment and supplies will be provided for each participant. The class is limited to 14 students, ages teen through adults. The classroom space is accessible by the WMI elevator, and Covid precautions will be in place.
