About this experience

Class Schedule Dates  Time
Thursday, March 7 & 14 1 - 3 PM
 
This class is two sessions long. Please ensure you are available for each session before booking your spot. See cancellation policy below. 
 
Almost every weaver I know LOVES to weave towels. If you've never used a hand-woven towel, you're in for a treat! Handwoven towels are more absorbent, last longer, and look better than any store-bought towel. They make great gifts.
 
We will be weaving a special kitchen towel with 8/2 cotton and bouclé yarns that are easy and quick to weave and have lots of texture. In this class we'll learn about yarns for towels, how to determine how much yarn to get, and different structures that work well for the kitchen. You will weave 2 towels.
 
Students will need a rigid heddle loom at least 24" wide and a 10-dent heddle. Kits are available in three colors of 8/2 and bouclé for an extra fee, or you can bring your own yarn in 8/2 or 8/4 (1000 yards) for warp, and at least 500 yards for weft. This is a two session class, so it's best to bring your loom beamed with 2.5 yards, and 21 inches wide.
 
The kit will come with warping instructions. If you need help warping, please set up a private lesson before class time so you're ready to weave!
