Join Florencia and learn the basics of bias weaving on pin loom. You will sample and use 3 different weave structures: Basic, Double, and Herringbone. This project class takes 9 squares and assembles them puzzle-like into sweet and clever hand-bag. Along the way you will learn how to read the written instructions and diagrams for bias-woven square construction, and how to make different joins.
