Instructor: Shannon Nelson

In this workshop we will take a closer look at how to use our 4 shaft looms to create intricate designs, such as curves and circles, in our weaving. Participants will be introduced to the overshot weave structure, its characteristics and its uses. We will try weaving different patterns on multiple pre-threaded looms, creating at least four samples that you will take home with you. 

Experience Necessary: This course is for intermediate weavers with some experience weaving different structures and patterns. You will also need to have some experience reading weaving drafts.


All Materials are included for this workshop
