(103) FULL ~ Weaving III: Efficient Weaving

This class will focus on establishing good weaving habits. From how you wind a bobbin to how you throw a shuttle, good habits help you enjoy weaving and allow you to produce good quality cloth. We’ll talk about different weaving structures, how to read a draft, and some of the challenges some of those structures present. This class is for anyone who is just learning to weave, or who wants to review the basics. Students can take this as a stand-alone class or in conjunction with Weaving 101, 102, and 104 for the complete Introduction to Weaving content.
