Learn to master the art of hand weaving and weave a table runner, to be taken home at the end of the day.
No previous experience is necessary, as you will be guided by Dahlia through the weaving, the design process and finishing.
We will be weaving with repurposed cotton fabric strips on rigid heddle looms. Each student will be encouraged to see this way of weaving as a potential form of art and design which will be foremost in determining a unique runner.
Consider bringing your own fabrics to cut into strips and weave with. These can include a son’s flannel shirt, a husband’s neckties, patterned sheets which are no longer in service, etc. Dahlia will have many cotton fabric strips to choose from as well.
Only the finest designer yarns are used for weaving during the class. All yarns are natural fiber, and many are limited edition yarns from all corners of the world. Cotton, silk, rayon, bamboo, ribbons, chenille, boucles, all of varying thicknesses and colors will be available. Your class fee includes use of a portable rigid heddle loom pre-warped and ready for weaving as well as an extensive variety of natural fibers to choose. Classes are limited to 6 people per session. This is a great experience for groups of friends or family members for a fun time!
