Description

Let the loom guide your hand! Explore what a 4-shaft loom can do with improvisational weaving techniques in this beginner-friendly online workshop. Immerse yourself in a joyful free weaving style where there are no mistakes, only expressions of what’s on your mind. Make up your own composition as you go with the help of expert guidance. Create a silk scarf that is uniquely your own on a pre-warped loom** by using freeform weaving, knotting, loom-controlled patterns, and whimsical touches.


Notes for Students:
If you have your own loom, a 4 shaft is ideal, rigid heddle is fine.
