Inkle Loom Weaving workshop update: The workshop went well as the attendees wove a guitar strap size band and learned to warp the inkle loom and weave letters. The attendees asked for additional training in card/tablet weaving so that class is being scheduled for June 27. Join us then and learn a new weaving technique.
Join us at the Bailey Cove Library, 1409 Weatherly Plaza Drive, Huntsville on Saturday May 20, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.. This workshop is open to adults and youth ages 14 and up. Learn the language of weaving. You’ll weave a band on an inkle loom which can become
a bookmark, hatband or small pouch to hold a cell phone, MP3 player or coins.
The instructor will prepare the inkle looms before class and bring all the tools and supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop. You’ll also learn how to prepare an inkle loom for weaving. No weaving or sewing experience is required. For those who have already woven on an inkle loom, learn pick-up to weave letters to add a message to your band. Pre-register by May 17 to reserve an inkle loom, and to receive the workshop handout by email. You’ll be welcome to the workshop if you don’t pre-register, but there may not be an inkle loom for you to use. The instructor will bring all the supplies for use in the workshop. Just bring a sack lunch and an eagerness to learn.
