Description
Have you puzzled over books that talked about extant garments that were made of 3/1 twill or tabby, and wondered what that looked like? Or wondered how yarn becomes cloth? This class will give an overview of looms, weaving terms, and how they are set up (Although warping will not be covered). There will be a loom in class to look at and to try weaving on. If there is time, drafts and drawdowns will also be covered.
