Learn all the steps needed to prepare a warp, dress it onto a floor loom, then weave. We’ll discuss the loom and how it works, how to design and plan a project, read a pattern draft, fiber selection and finishing techniques. Begin with a scarf or table runner, then go on to weave a color gamp (sampler), exploring different twill patterns and see how colors interact. 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 lives on a hobby farm with a growing collection of looms and a herd of llamas.
