This class is the second in a 2 part series. By the end of the 2 part series, students will have attained the necessary skills to plan, set up, and execute a project on a jack or counterbalance loom.

In Part 1 of this series, students learned the basics of weaving beginning with the vocabulary of weaving, the names of the different parts of the loom as well as the terminology used in the weaving process, how to use a warping board and wind a warp, how to dress a loom and set up their tools for weaving, and the basics of woven structures.

In Part 2, students will design and weave their own projects under the guidance of the instructor.

Supplies: .

Students will need to bring their choice of warp and weft yarns, and a measuring tape. It’s recommended students bring a notebook or a 3 ring binder & writing tools for notes, handouts and samples. Students are encouraged to bring extra shuttles and yarn from home for trying different color and texture effects.

While the NCAC has floor looms available for use by students, some students may wish to bring in their own loom from home. Should you wish to take advantage of this, please send us an email so we can arrange a time to meet you and set up your loom. Setting up a loom is a considerable time commitment for the instructor as each loom has its own “personality” and each brand operates a little differently. We’re happy to offer this service free of charge to help you become more comfortable working with your own loom. Please note that all students will be rotating between looms in this class in order to learn different weaving techniques etc. and your loom will be included in the rotation. If you’re not comfortable with beginner students weaving on your loom, we encourage you to use one of our looms instead.
