Weaving with Novelty Yarns

Working with a variety of yarn weights and textures, you will learn the secrets of using novelty yarns, with a focus on combining fibers within 1 warp.

You will need a rigid heddle loom with an 8 dent reed. Bring the usual weaving utensils (warping hook, tapestry needles, scissors, measuring tape).

The yarn we will use for warping is Malabrigo Caracol (83 yards). Also, you will need silk, bamboo or similar fiber in dark solid (95 yards) and light solid (35 yards) and some ribbon or tape for texture (77 yards).  If you have some yarn in your stash that will be fine. For weaving, you will need lace weight yarn in silk, soy or wool (338 yards).

1 session - Saturday, June 17, 10 am to 1 pm. $40. 

Come Dye with us in our “courtyard” - using the shibori technique.  A fun day to make a mess outside and make fabulous fabric at the same time.

Shibori is a type of Japanese resist dyeing. In this class we will use the traditional folding and resist techniques and bright dyes to create exciting patterns and colors! Each student will make 3 or 4 scarfs by folding and tying fabric, using resist shapes, and a piece of PVC pipe to make unique, one of a kind scarves!

Students bring aprons, gloves, and wear clothing you don't mind getting dye on.

Instructor will provide fabric, dyes, string, resist shapes, clips, and PVC pipe. We will prepare the scarves inside in the air conditioning (if it's very hot) and then go outside do dye. 

Note new date:
Saturday - July 15, 10:30 am until 2 pm. $50 includes all materials.
