Description

This dynamic design is pretty easy once you understand how it works.

Prior to class, you will warp the rigid heddle loom according to the handout instructions so you are ready to weave right away. You don’t need previous experience with leno as we’ll learn that technique in class. First, we will work medallions across a row, then arrange them in various ways to create other patterns. Along the way, we will discuss color combinations, pattern arrangement, and yarn selections for other projects.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Students must be comfortable warping the loom on their own before class.

Supply List
• Scissors
• Tape measure
• Straight pins
• Tapestry needle
• Fingering- to sport-weight classic yarn (smooth, not fuzzy) and strong enough for warp, 100 yards of 1 dark color, and 120 yards each of 5 different light colors. This includes the warp yarn (threaded onto loom prior to class). Plan for using 5 different weft colors, so have shuttles able to accommodate that many colors.
If you want to use a single color for the weft, plan on 250 yards for that. It should be the same size as your warp yarn and a color that will blend with the light weft colors.

Required Equipment:
• Rigid Heddle Loom with at least 10″ weaving width and 7.5 dent reed
• Pick-up stick at least 10″ wide
• Shuttle(s) (and bobbins if using a boat shuttle)

Moderate pre-class work required.

Really fun and pretty technique

This class was a lot easier than the pinwheels class. Don’t get me wrong, I loved both. But for context, it’s actually a very simple technique to play around with and the final effect is lovely.
