This class is for the Intermediate student. You must have knowledge of direct warping and balanced weave and hem stitching. We will use two pick-up sticks to create the table runner, in addition to the heddle and shuttle. The pick-up sticks create a 3rd and 4th shed for texture. Once the table runner is off the loom, you will complete your project with a lattice woven fringe for a fun finish.
The recommended fiber for the table runner is a sport weight or light DK weight yarn in 100% cotton. If you use wool or acrylic, you will not achieve the finish intended, though it will still be wonderful! You can use the same color for the warp & weft or different colors for each. If you use one color, you will need approximately 350 yards. If you want two colors, you will need 250 yards for warp & 100 yards for weft. It should cost about $25 for the yarn, and your instructor will send information about where to purchase the yarn needed once you are registered.
Students need to bring: Yarn (see above description), scissors, tapestry needle, and a tape measure.
Open to students ages 18 and older.
Appropriate for intermediate skill levels, or if you have taken the Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving course.
