Band loom weaving is easier than you may think and it is a great way to start weaving. There are endlessly fascinating weavings that can be created on an Inkle loom. The bands woven on an Inkle loom are versatile and very useful. This type of weaving has been around for centuries.
In this class, you will learn the basics of weaving on an Inkle loom. At the end of the class, you will leave with a memento from your experience, perhaps a bookmark, keychain, or lanyard, depending on how long a band you decide to weave.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
- Loom (99% warped; students will warp the last few threads for experience)
- Shuttle (pre-wound and ready to use)
- Written instructions
Students are asked to bring:
- A pair of scissors
- Clean container about the size of a large coffee can
- As your class is scheduled over a lunch hour, we highly recommend you bring a lunch or click here to learn about local eating opportunities in the area.
No experience required.
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend.
