It's time to get creative with your shoelaces or other narrow weaved items! Inkle weaving is fun and most commonly used for ribbon, bands, trim, straps, belts, etc. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at weaving, this class is a perfect way to get started!
Students will be introduced to the small Inkle Loom and receive instruction on how to use it and set it up. Education regarding heddles and how to make them fit will also be given. Students will design a simple multi-colored band and learn various techniques on how to create unique patterns.
Yarn will be available for purchase during class. Please bring your own Inkle Loom if you have one. For students who do not have a loom yet, there are several looms at the Pioneer Craft House that will be available for rent.
