Norwegian pickup band weaving

There are endlessly fascinating weavings that can be created on an Inkle loom. This type of band weaving has been around for centuries. In this class, you will learn how to choose threads for the Norwegian pickup technique, how to warp a loom, how to follow a pickup pattern, how to pick up/drop pattern threads, and what to consider when designing a pickup pattern.

You will create a lanyard, key chain or bookmark in class.
