There are now four online instruction modules available from Historic Weaving designed to ease you into the weaving world.
I use these modules when I teach in person with my mobile weaving studio. The looms I use for my instruction in my mobile studio are Ashford “Katie” table looms. While the looms are small in scale and quite portable, the methods that I present are the same ones used by professional weavers weaving on large looms. I present new tools with the methods to save time and effort and provide excellent results.
Clicking the links below will take you to the shop pages for the individual products:
Local weavers, I have found there are 2 spots open in the next running of Getting Warped (April 12/13) and in the Historical Horizontal Stripes (April 26/27) Adult Continuing Education classes running through Bozeman Adult Education.
What will you learn:
Getting Warped: Beginning Warp Calculations (planning the warp). Using a Vertical Warping Mill, and Front to Back Warping on a table loom using the reed. You will plan, warp a loom and weave a project in 4 hours of class time
Historic Horizontal Stripes: How they were used and where to find them using Art pieces on display in museums, and online research. Discover how they were created using standard looms, not just tablet weaving or drawlooms. Learn about the earliest weaving books and what they have to offer to weavers today. Learn new weaving techniques using loom control and pickup without pain. You will also weave horizontal stripes of your own during 4 hours of class time.
Time and Location Mon/Tue 6pm to 8 pm, at the Willson School on the second floor. (Accessible as there is an elevator if needed).
Cost of workshop is $47. Looms and materials and handouts are provided.
