Pattern Power

Think that plain weave is all you can do on a rigid-heddle loom? Meet the pick-up stick! With this simple tool you can create patterns galore. Learn how to make weft and warp floats and when and how to combine them. In this class you will weave a small scarf. This pattern is easily translated into all sort of
interiors and accessories. As a bonus you will learn hemstitching and embroidery stitch, two go-to finishes for weavers. As with all of Liz's classes, you aren't just learning how to make a beautiful object, you are learning the fundamentals to weaving well.

Lunch not provided.
