This is an all day class. . . .

This class involves the use of a bell shaped resist to create a three dimensional hood of hand felted fiber.  The hood is then blocked, shaped and steamed into a brimmed hat.  Students will choose a solid color or blend of colors and add embellishments if they wish.  You will also be shown how to make rolled cording for self-hatbands.

We are just learning how this form of weaving fits into our lives. At this time there are no books available on weaving on a peg loom and your imagination will be the only boundaries of your creativity in this class. You will learn different techniques to help you achieve your goal, such as plain weave, inlay’s, color and texture structures, and much more. Check out Pinterest for example of things you can make from rugs, placemats, scarves, purses, to wall hangings. You will go home with an amazing completed project of your choice. I will bring a tub full of yarns and other fun stuff. Use of a Peg Loom is included in your registration. Handouts included .

Students are welcome to bring any fiber, fabric, etc they would like to experiment with.

The double slotted reed is similar to a regular rigid heddle but has an extra set of slots that are designed to carry the pattern warp separate

from the background threads. As you raise or lower the reed for each shed the pattern threads remain separate in the center of the shed 

making them easier to pick up or drop. The background warp weaves a plain weave and the pattern threads float on top of the warp threads, a

variation of pick up only much easier since the pattern threads are separated.

All materials are included in this workshop as well as the double slotted heddle which is yours to keep..
