Weaving and Spinning Classes
Weaving Classes by Judy
Weaving Classes at Color Crossing, 201 N. Vine St, Roberts, WI. www.colorcrossing.com Please sign up at least one week before scheduled class date, so I know how many looms to get ready. These are all beginner level classes. No previous weaving experience is necessary. Contact Judy Larson at [email protected] if you have questions or if you need to arrange a time for a special project. There must be at least two students enrolled for a class to be held.
New Class: Weave a Towel : Learn to warp and weave towels on a four harness loom. Purchase 8/2 cotton in your favorite colors, then wind and warp the loom. The next two days are for weaving. One threading allows many pattern options, so you can weave more than one! Class meets 9-4 for three days. Sept 28, 29, 30. Cost $250. Instructor: Judy Larson
Intro to Weaving for Kids and Adults (Ages 7- and up): Make a table runner on a two harness loom, and a place mat on a 4-harness floor loom. All materials are provided. Class meets noon-4. Limit of 4 per class. Cost $80. Instructor: Judy Larson Choose one class date. Sept 16 or Oct. 21 or Nov. 18.
Inkle Loom Introduction- (Ages 7 and up) Learn to plan, warp, and weave on an inkle loom. Create a great belt, strap for a purse, guitar, or camera, or make a set of bookmarks, or find another use for the woven bands. Class meets from 4-7 on Sept. 6/13 or Oct. 18/25. Inkle looms are available to take home for a $100 deposit, refunded to you when the loom is returned. Cost is $80.
Cricket Scarf Class for Kids and Adults (Ages 7 and up): Try out the new Cricket rigid heddle loom. Purchase your chunky yarn color, then learn to direct warp the Cricket loom and make a 6 foot scarf. Finish your ends with knots, and take home your creation! Class meets 4:00-7:00 on Sept 20/27. Cost: $80 Instructor: Judy Larson
Rag Rug Class: Bring in 3 3-yard pieces of prewashed cotton fabric( at least 9 yards total). You’ll learn to cut strips first, then weave your own rug, using tabby, log cabin, meet and part, two shuttle and three-shuttle techniques. The loom will be pre-warped and ready for you to weave! Cost: $260 Class meets from 9-5 for two days. Class dates: Oct. 19/20 or Nov. 16/17. Instructor: Judy Larson Please let me know your two warp color preferences at least one week before class.
Warping a Loom: Learn to read a draft, wind a warp, and warp a loom. Then you can weave off your own table runner independently on the following day. Bring three yards of cotton fabrics, pre-washed. Class meets from 9-5 on Oct. 27/28. Cost is $200. Instructor: Judy Larson Please let me know if you want to bring in your own loom, or use a Color Crossing loom.
Ruffled Scarf Class: Class meets on two Wednesday evenings from 4:00-7:00 on Nov. 1/15. Cost $80 Instructor: Judy Larson
Using a Cricket rigid heddle loom, you will learn to plan, warp, and weave a ruffled scarf. First you’ll purchase your lace weight yarn and your Zephyr yarn in your choice of colors. Then you’ll learn to direct warp your loom and start weaving. After you’ve woven 120 inches of scarf, you’ll take it off the loom, knot your ends, and wash it. The magic of differential shrinkage will create the ruffles in your new scarf.
If you have your own rigid heddle loom, bring it to class. You need a loom at least 8 inches wide with an 8, 10, or 12 dent reed. Please contact Judy Larson at [email protected] if you have other questions. Let me know if you need to use a shop loom. No previous weaving experience is required. There is a sample scarf in the shop for you to see.
