Hand Weaving (Introductory to Intermediate Level)
Our series of eight classes is designed to introduce you to the necessary skills to weave on a floor loom and to reinforce those skills as you progress through the class. New weavers will work on a scarf as their first project. A second project will be decided in consultation with the instructor. Returning weavers are welcome to work on a project of their choice. After taking these classes you will have experience in winding a warp, dressing or threading the loom, reading weaving drafts and weaving a project. All projects will be created on floor looms and students are encouraged to work on their projects during non-class hours. This program is suitable for beginner level weavers as well as those with experience. New students will be contacted by the instructor prior to class to discuss projects and yarn requirements. Returning students should bring yarn for the project of their choice.
Diane Campbell has been weaving since 1990 when she began learning from mentor and friend Patricia McClelland. Diane has a great appreciation for fine craft and textiles in particular. She has tried her hand at hooked rugs, quilt making, felting and such but it is the call of the loom that continually draws her back to weaving. Diane enjoys creating a wide variety of handwovens – from household linens to tartan throws, rugs and overshot coverlets.
