Part II Weaving Basics
with Sharon Gilsleider
While color plays a big part of the design—(yes we explore that in-depth), we will move beyond “plain weave” into several techniques of manipulating the threads to create textures, lacey patterns, and wonderful edges. We will be perfecting your weaving skills by cleaning up the edges, adjusting proper tension, and making clean thread joins. We’ll finish by cutting up your weaving & sewing it back together to form a pillow, zippered bag, or another item. The prerequisite for this class is Weaving Basics, Part I. You must own or have access to a rigid heddle or a floor loom for this class. Merrymeeting will send you information about accessing the class prior to its start date. The class takes place on Zoom.
Students must have an audio and video-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate.
