Youth Session 1, Youth Session 2 and Family Session – One Level
Students will be able to dye fibres (using Kool-Aid) and use the dyed fibres in a small project. Each student will have their own loom. There is a maximum of 6 per class. No course level selection is required for this program and no previous weaving experience is required.
This week will begin with dying preparatory work, introduction to looms and move on the setting up the dyed fibre on the loom. The project might include bookmarks, a small wall hanging, a scarf or placemat. The weaving and finishing of projects will occur over the bulk of the week.
Adult Session 1 and 2
Students will have a choice of looms (floor vs. table) and a choice of projects. Looms will be available pre-dressed for those choosing to learn various weave structures. Other projects might include a scarf, table runner, placemats, or a guitar strap. Students will have the opportunity to learn the technique of dressing a loom, reading a weaving draft and finishing techniques. Projects are chosen based on the amount of time spent in class. Materials are all provided.
