In this class, participants can expect to learn the basics of weaving, including how to make your own portable looms, set up a warp and a weft, and learn textile weaves such as plain weave, twill weave, and wrapped warp. We will then transfer the weaving techniques into visible mending on damaged clothing and other functional textiles.
Note: There is no class on 2/19.
All students must comply with the Policies and Procedures found on The Center's website. There will be no refunds for students removed from class for failure to observe The Center’s Policies and Procedures.
Firm cardboard (to make looms on)
Big paper clips
Students are welcome to bring in a damaged garment they’d like to mend with the weaving techniques, or functional textiles in need of repair you would want to mend at the end.
