A virtual class with Linda Pietz
July 8, 5:00-7:00pm & July 9, 5:00-7:00pm CDT
the craft of Finger Weaving uses a few very simple tools and is a portable way to make decorative and useful bands, belts, and straps.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Finger weaving has been practiced around the globe from Lapland to the Middle East. Indigenous women in Canada and the United States
finger-wove sashes for both tribal use and trade — and still use the bands in their traditional dress.
Linda will guide you through the set-up and the weaving as you learn some of the traditional patterns — diagonal, stipple, vertical stripe, and chevron. These patterns can be combined in larger projects for stunning results. Finishing options will be discussed.
• Three to four colors of worsted-weight yarn. Linda recommends Brown Sheep Company Lambs Pride worsted.
• Large binder clip
• Unsharpened pencil or similar size dowel
• Approximately 8 x 10-inch piece of sturdy corrugated cardboard, mat board, or Masonite
