Overshot Harness Loom Class

Overshot, a block style fabric, is a go to weave structure for many weavers. It is a style that has been popular in North America since the turn of the 19th century mainly for the creation of coverlets. Now overshot is used for a variety of fabrics and is such a fun way to explore and create patterns on a four harness loom! In class students will  learn how to read and create overshot patterns as well as set up to weave either a sampler, hot pads or a narrow runner.
