If you are curious about weaving, here is your opportunity to enjoy the excitement, creativity and fun of learning a pastime that offers boundless possibilities. You will learn all the steps necessary to prepare a warp, dress it onto a floor loom, then weave. We will discuss the loom itself and how it works, how to design and plan a project, read a pattern draft, fiber selection and finishing techniques. You’ll begin with your choice of a scarf or table runner, then go on to weave a color gamp (sampler) to explore different twill patterns and see how colors interact. Examples of possible projects will be available for inspiration. Looms and weaving accessories provided.
Susan Frame was inspired to learn how to weave by her Uncle Harold’s woven purses and cloth made in the 50’s and 60’s. Fascinated, she took her first weaving class in 1982 at UW-River Falls and continued with lessons at more Midwest locations, including Sievers. Since 1998 Susan has had the pleasure of teaching many types of weaving techniques at The Fiber Garden in Black River Falls, WI. She and her husband live on a hobby farm in Osseo, WI with a growing collection of looms and a herd of llamas.
