Description
Weave your heart! Learn to weave freestyle and free-spirited on a simple floor loom. Honor your own inner sense of beauty and truth as you play with color, texture, and technique, and come away with a unique piece of woven art that reflects your creative spirit (yes, you absolutely do have one!). Students will learn the basic skills of freestyle weaving on a highly approachable, easy-to-use two-harness floor loom. The class will emphasize play, experimentation, and individual exploration of color and texture in the service of personal expression; a few simple weaving techniques will be taught along the way. Students will take home what they weave. Students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore--and to practice imperfection! Materials cost covers: Use of warped SAORI loom; use of associated tools (shuttles, bobbins, etc.); access to and use of a wide variety of different weaving materials, including yarn in various fibers, colors, and textures, embroidery floss, fabric scraps, fiber, trim, beads, wire, Mylar, etc. Each student will also get a bag of fibery treasures to keep; they can be used in class, in a future weaving, or both. And of course, students will take home whatever they weave! Materials fees are included in the cost of registration. No participant-provided materials required: instructor will provide all tools and materials. Students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore--and to practice imperfection! That said, if students want to bring something personally meaningful to them to incorporate into their weaving if possible, they're welcome--indeed, encouraged--to do so. Some past examples: specialty paper, pieces of jewelry (this is a fun use for unmatched earrings), student's handspun yarn (handspun of all sorts weaves up wonderfully), dyed or undyed fiber, leftover quantities of treasured yarn too small to knit or crochet a finished item with. No homework prior to class. Indeed, no previous experience with weaving required (though experienced weavers are as welcome as complete novices). Class is truly intended to be open to anyone who wants to try freestyle weaving, from the experienced weaver to the person who’s never even touched a loom before.

Weave your joy! Maybe you’ve done a little weaving in the freestyle world, and you find it speaks to your heart. Now you’re ready to learn some new techniques to add to your freespirited toolbox as you continue down your weaving path. Invite this class into your life! Students will learn various ways to add creativity and personal expression to warp and weft as they weave the fabric of their heart on a highly approachable and easy-to-use two-harness floor loom. Supplemental warps, interlaid and interlocked shapes, rya knots, loops and worms, and more creative choices await! Materials cost covers: Use of warped SAORI loom; use of associated tools (shuttles, bobbins, etc.); access to and use of a wide variety of different weaving materials, including yarn in various fibers, colors, and textures, embroidery floss, fabric scraps, fiber, trim, beads, wire, Mylar, etc. Each student will also get a bag of fibery treasures to keep; they can be used in class, in a future weaving, or both. And of course, students will take home whatever they weave! Materials fees are included in the cost of registration. No participant-provided materials required: instructor will provide all tools and materials. Students just need to bring their willingness to experiment and explore--and to practice imperfection! That said, if students want to bring something personally meaningful to them to incorporate into their weaving if possible, they're welcome--indeed, encouraged--to do so. Some past examples: specialty paper, pieces of jewelry (this is a fun use for unmatched earrings), student's handspun yarn (handspun of all sorts weaves up wonderfully), dyed or undyed fiber, leftover quantities of treasured yarn too small to knit or crochet a finished item with. No homework prior to class. Indeed, no previous experience with weaving required (though experienced weavers are as welcome as complete novices). Class is truly intended to be open to anyone who wants to try freestyle weaving, from the experienced weaver to the person who’s never even touched a loom before. Students must be tall enough to reach the floor pedals on the looms and able to focus for the duration of the class. Students must be able to sit on a slightly padded keyboard bench for the duration of the class (don’t worry, the instructor will require regular stand-up breaks!).

Skill level is advanced. Prerequisite: Must have experience with mitered squares. Must know how to work a double decrease (three stitches become one) and a double increase (one stitch becomes three). If you have never made mitered squares, please make the two optional homework swatches (directions here), which are a decreasing mitered square and an increasing mitered square. Know how you like to use markers so you can reliably work a double decrease or a double increase without the line "drifting." What you will learn: how to plan a labyrinth project how to knit a right-turning labyrinth how to knit a left-turning labyrinth how to join it all together tips and tricks for keeping track as you work Students receive a handout in booklet form and the patterns for Twist & Turn Cube and Zig-Zag Cube. There is no materials fee. Student minimum age: 12 Bring: class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color); multiple colors of yarn or long-print yarns are especially fun in this technique. a long (40- or 60-inch) circular or interchangeable needle you like with this yarn stitch markers in at least two colors crochet hook Homework: Know your favorite double-increase (turn one stitch into three) and double-decrease (turn three stitches into one) and how you like to use stitch markers at those points. Please take a few minutes to practice both of those before class if it has been awhile since you have used either technique. If you have never made mitered squares, please work one increasing mitered square and one decreasing mitered square.
