In this workshop you will create your very own custom top from start to finish. First, you will design and weave your very own unique fabric on a traditional table loom. Looms will be set up and ready to weave. You will learn how to create several patterns, choose a colour scheme and weave an accent fabric. Then, you will turn your fabric into a top, uniquely fit to you!
The Cambric Top is a flowy linen with sleeves done in a looser handwoven. This top is loose, comfortable and can be dressed up or down.
Project The Gather designed Cambric Top. We have sampled, sewed and seam ripped to bring you an originally designed top we love and think you will too!
Who is this class for?
This class is great if you’ve sewn with us before, or have beginner skills. If you’ve never used a machine and have never done a project you should take an adult beginner class first. You should be comfortable threading and using the sewing machine, know what seam allowances are, and can problem solve minor issue that come up.
For weaving, this is great for complete beginners who just want to try weaving. If you already have experience then you’ll be able to do a more advanced pattern sequence or work with tricky materials.
All Materials are included! You only need to bring yourself and a lunch for both days.
