Learn to Weave on an Inkle Loom



Inkle Weaving is a fun way to learn about weaving without the investment of expensive equipment to start out.  An Inkle loom is a portable belt loom that can be warped up in an afternoon and woven in 3-4 hours.  Inkle bands can be used to make belts, straps, bookmarks, ornaments and more.

During this one session class you will learn to warp your loom and read patterns so you can re-warp a loom on your own.  Bring your own loom or rent a loom from the instructor. 

In this workshop, you will be weaving by mid-day.  If you don’t finish your project by the end of class you can make arrangements to rent the loom for a week.  Finishing techniques will also be covered.

Students will have time during class to break for lunch, and we suggest you bring a sack lunch rather than find food downtown on Sunday.  

Materials to bring:

Inkle Loom and Shuttle (rent a loom and shuttle from the instructor with prior arrangements)

No cost to use the looms & shuttle during the workshop, $10 to rent the loom for the week

Scissors

Note taking materials

3/2 Pearl Cotton in 3 contrasting colors, about 3 oz. of each color.  

1 tube of Carpet warp (8/4 cotton) in any color (for making heddles) Instructor will have some in class

3- ½” craft sticks if you have them

If you do not have the above on hand, instructor will provide a kit.  The materials fee payable to the instructor the day of class will be 10.00
