  • Workshop Information
    • Weave one or two iridescent scarves.
    • Iridescent fabric has the fascinating property of looking more like the wrap color at one angle, and more like the weft color at another angle.
    • Iridescence requires a shiny, smooth warp, in finer threads, and careful color selection.
    • Simple twill or plain weave scarves will be woven on 4-shafts or rigid heddle looms.
    • Color sampling will be done at the start of your project.
    • Begin with a naked loom, and learn to dress the loom for weaving.
    • Shaft looms available for rental or sale after class, if desired.
    • No prior weaving experience necessary.
    • Small class size, for teens and adults.
