DETAILS

Welcome to the land of inkle weaving!

Annie MacHale, a weaver based in New Mexico, will be making a special trip to the studio to share her incredible inkle weaving knowledge! She has recently published two wonderful books on color and design for the inkle loom! Books will be available to purchase directly from her in class. Please bring cash or check.

This class will provide you with color and design theory for warp-faced bandweaving. Students will create their own pattern (if desired, or select from existing designs), warp the loom, and begin weaving on their project. 

Finished bands are used as belts, bag or guitar straps, hat bands, keychains and more! 

Ages: 12+
Skill Requirements: None
Taught by: Annie MacHale

The Finer Details...
