Pin Weaving Basics
With Linda Pietz
Aug 6, 1:00-3:00pm CDT
Dating back to the 1930’s, pin-loom weaving is making a resurgence. If you have ever wondered how to weave on one of these small portable looms, this class is for you.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Start from the very beginning. Linda takes you through the process from warping the loom to finishing a square. Learn different ways to join the squares so you can create anything from garments to toys to home accessories. Then go beyond the basics, Linda will show variations to individualize your projects.
