Design and weave a colorful strap using an inkle loom. Class one includes design work, loom dressing and how to weave. In the second class students will take their bands off the loom and finish them for the end use: belt, hat band, bag strap garment trim – even an instrument strap with prearranged fittings. In the second session, experienced weavers inspired to work in a more complex structure will learn the pick-up technique to weave words and patterns and keep the looms for an additional week. Looms are available for use at home with a refundable deposit. No experience necessary.
