Woven napkins

*May and June classes will open to members on March 12 and non-members on March 14. Not a member? Sign up here. *

Join instructor Katherine Buenger to explore the magic of color and weave, using a rigid heddle loom. Weaving 4 napkins and using 2 colors, students will create at least 16 different patterns. Each napkin will have 4 different patterns. Students will learn how to thread a loom with 2 threads in both holes and slots. They will also learn how to tie on using shoe laces, a quick and easy way to save warp. Shoelaces are included in the materials fee.

This is a three-day class. Participants will need to weave at home between each session.

Class times:
Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday, May 19 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
