Let’s make a handwoven textured scarf from start to finish!
• Learn how to plan a weaving project and calculate carefully how much yarn you will need.
• Learn the basics of setting up a table loom from warping to tie up.
• Create a beautiful textured scarf using plain weave.
• Finishing techniques will be demonstrated to complete the scarf off the loom.
• The final size of the scarf will be approximately 12” W x 65” L after wet finishing.
Materials for this project include a choice of 2-3 colours in a gorgeous 100% cotton slub yarn and are covered under the materials fee. Students will be able to select their colours ahead of time once they have registered.
