Ages 16 and older
Using Berroco Pima Soft, students will wind on enough warp to weave up to 5 spa cloths. Using one color for the warp and a different color for the weft, you can be creative with your designs as you weave, and can choose to weave for a rolled hem or short fringe. The instructor will have samples of each so you can decide before you start weaving.
Are you making them as gifts? They would be great for gift exchanges at work or stocking stuffers (it's never to early to start planning!) or make them all for yourself to enjoy!
This two day course is appropriate for confident beginners who have a basic knowledge of weaving and warping a loom.
Students must bring two skeins for the warp and one skein for the weft, for a total of approximately 350 yards of Berroco Pima Soft yarn in two colors ($8.50 per skein). Please also bring a tapestry needle and scissors. Berroco Pima Soft may be purchased at Black Sheep Yarn Boutique in Olympia. Mention your purchase is for a class at Arbutus to receive a 10% discount on your purchase.
Your instructor will also email you additional information closer to the start date.
Course takes place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia. Downtown parking is free on weekends.
