*OPTIONAL BOARDING HOUSE ROOM RESERVATION (THIS HOLDS YOUR SPOT, ROOM FEES + TAX DUE AT THE END OF YOUR STAY)
OCT. 16–20 (MON.–FRI., 9 AM–4 PM)
Have you ever wanted to wrap yourself in an adult-size, handwoven throw, but your loom width seems more doll-size? Join author, pattern designer, and color-enthusiast Elisabeth Hill to learn the art of double weave—a fascinating structure that allows you to weave two pieces of fabric at the same time. Under her professional tutelage, Elisabeth expertly guides you through the intricate techniques needed to expand your loom’s capacity using double weave during this week-long workshop. You’ll learn how to draft double-wide double weave in twill and plain weave, manage the fold on the loom, use floating selvedges on two layers, avoid mistakes and repair, and twine your blanket edges. You’ll leave with a beautiful sample and the confidence to immerse yourself in the joyful minutiae of your next double weave project.
Skill Level: Intermediate. Students must be able to warp a floor loom and follow a weaving draft. A Harrisville 8-harness loom will be provided.
