When Plain Weave is Not Plain! with Hazel Spencer


Time: Friday, September 30th 9a.m.-4p.m.


Location: Dixon May Fairgrounds in Dixon, CA


Workshop Description: Plain Weave does not mean Boring Weave! Plain one color, over-under weaves have lots uses in our projects but there are times when we want and need something more. This class will be about finding the unplain in plain weave using a pin loom. We'll be looking at color weaving and also at textures and show you can combine the two to expand possibilities in your projects.


Experience Level: Beginning level skills. You should know how to weave the continuous square on a pin loom.


Students Should Bring: Square pin loom ideally 10.5"-14" (instructor has some available to borrow), weaving tools, worsted weight yarn in at least two colors, pen or pencil


Instructor will supply: Class handout. Some 10.5" square looms and worsted weight yarns are available for class use, although it's recommended you bring your own.
