(102) FULL ~ Weaving II: Dressing the Loom

Do you get that deer-in-the-headlights look after you have wound your warp and before you begin to put it on the loom? This class will help you get your wound warp onto the loom and ready to go. We’ll break down the steps of beaming, threading, sleying, tying up the treadles, and tying on the warp. By the end of the class you will be able to start weaving. I will teach warping from the back to the front of the loom. This class is for beginners who have learned to wind a warp, or anyone who wants to review techniques to dress their loom. Students can take this as a stand-alone class or in conjunction with Weaving 101, 103, and 104 for the complete Introduction to Weaving content.
