Remember all the rules Debbi taught you for yarn selection in your beginning weaving class? In this class, you get to forget most of them! We'll break as few or as many of the rules as you want, but Debbi will show you how to weave with different thicknesses, different textures, different colors, and finish up by using your beginning warp as your ending weft.
Mind blown yet? The end result is a scarf/poncho/cowl fabric that has no beginning and no end. It's not quite circular and very, very unusual. (Caryn has had folks try to buy hers while she's worn it on business trips....)
Session 1 will include warping and some weaving; Session 2 will include using the beginning warp as ending weft; make sure you finish weaving the bulk of the project during the week in between classes!
Rigid-heddle loom. Looms available for rent or purchase.
Yarn choices to consider: 1 skein fingering, about 50g of mohair, dk weight rayon, 1 skein novelty (e.g., Viva Glitz or ribbon yarns). Students will have time in class to pick out yarn with Debbi's guidance (yarn from home also an option, bring interesting stash yarns...).Prerequisites: This class is for experienced weavers. You must know how to warp your loom and how to achieve a balanced weave, Beginning Rigid Heddle weaving + lots of practice. It helps to have a spirit of adventure!Time: Two 6-hour sessions (consecutive Saturdays)
