Color and Weave Mini Tote Bag with Deborah Jarchow
Learn to get outstanding color pattern effects using a rigid heddle loom. Make your weaving look like complicated patterns with very little effort. If you already are familiar with the rigid heddle loom, this class will help you master more advanced techniques. If you are a relatively new weaver, the technique is not too difficult to learn. This type of weaving is portable, easy and fun and can add variety to your fiber abilities.
Note: Looms provided for class use.
200 yards each of two contrasting colors of yarn, about worsted weight, that is smooth, strong, and non-hairy; tapestry needle; cardboard tube from inside a paper towel role; 2 brown paper grocery bags.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
