It's easy to feel intimidated by raw (unwashed, straight off the animal) fleeces. However, with some basic knowledge under your belt and realizing that YOU have the upper hand, a whole new relationship with fiber begins. There is no need to fear those filled bags any longer, at the end of this class you'll be able to open them up and get to work, letting your imagination and creativity guide you. This class is designed for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, building a solid foundation from which to expand into whichever direction you choose. What you learn in this class are the exact same techniques that I use in my own studio, presented in an easy to understand format. By the time you go home you'll feel confident and inspired. However, be prepared for a lot of hands on work, as you learn best by doing. This is definitely not a boring sit-down class!

Weaving was always so enticing to me until I realized that warping is something I did not at all enjoy, so when I took a short triloom weaving class several years ago it was love at first sight!  It is simple, quick, beautiful, and best of all - it is instant gratification. Whether you weave on a 12 inch loom or a 7 foot loom, the technique is the same.

During this 4 hour workshop you will learn to weave on a triloom using the continuous strand method (an entire skein of yarn without cutting, except for fringe) while making a fabulous fringed shawlette on a 2.5 foot loom. Imaging the shawls you will be able to weave afterwards, either to sell or as gifts for family and friends, from either commercial or hand spun yarns.
