Fun February Classes
Mönster Parti We introduced this new class in February and what an interesting and challenging course it was. Daily theory lessons focused on analyzing profile drafts and profile tie-ups and how changing the profile tie-up can produce endless design variations. These lessons were then applied at the looms on a variety of woven structures.
Vävstuga Basics We ended the month with another wonderful Basics class with its usual camaraderie, in-depth learning, and lots of weaving. Projects include cottolin and tow linen towels, cotton and cottolin table squares, line linen 8-shaft damask, and yummy Tuna wool blankets.
Feeling spontaneous? We have one spot in Basics next week, March 9-13!
We also have two spots open in our April 20-24 class and room in our July 13-17 and August 10-14 class weeks.
The Vävstuga Band Loom is ready!
The Vävstuga band loom fills a niche for those who want to weave plain bands and pick-up bands efficiently and comfortably on a little floor loom. The inkle shedding system spreads out the warp threads to facilitate weaving ornate pick-up patterns.
Vävstuga Band Loom Class August 3-7
To experience all the variety of things you can weave on the Vävstuga band loom you should come to this class! From plain weave bands to Mora style bands, to fancy pick-up patterns, this little loom can do it all.
