Now that you know how to weave on a frame loom, it is time to 'up your game' and weave bigger projects.

In this workshop, you will be weaving on the large frame looms supplied by the Fiber Studio.

You will learn:

  • about fabrics that work best for this kind of weaving; 
  • translating drawings to finished products;  
  • the special techniques that are unique to the larger looms for rag weaving.

This is a 3 session class that will enable you to make a pillow cover, a runner, etc. After taking this class, you will be ready to make you own woven rag rug on a large frame.  

Details:

  • Materials: A materials fee of $50 is included in the price of class. 
  • The Fiber Arts Studio will provide the floor frame looms and fabric, but students are welcome to bring their own. Let the instructor know if you will be bringing your own large frame loom by using the registration option for "Bringing Large Frame Loom".
