Hello Routine! How I have missed you!
Beginning Multi Harness Loom WeavingLearn how to warp (set up) the multiharness loom with a two color warp, and weave basic structures including plain, basket and twill. Discover how color and structure influence each other. You will have a library of patterns when you are finished. If you are a fast weaver, you will have time to plan and complete a simple project of your own choosing with instructor guidance.
If you are an experienced weaver and would like to move to the next step - I would love to have you in class! Please go to www.mcrayweaving.blospot.com, click on the “Classes I Teach” tab, and read about my suggested weaving curriculum.
