Floor Loom 301 – Double Weave – Blanket (3-day)

fibercrafts

3 day class

Double weave is the technique used to weave multiple layers of cloth simultaneously. It can be used for a large variety of projects including blankets, pillow covers, bags, durable saddle blankets and table runners. This is a fun and easy technique whenever you want to make something with extra padding or something reversible. If you are limited to a small loom, you can use this technique to weave fabric with a fold along one side of the project and then open it to twice the woven width.

In this three-day class you will use the double weave technique to make a variegated wool blanket with a fold on one side, so that it will open up to twice the woven width once you take it off the loom. You will focus on weaving a consistent edge along the fold so that it shows as little as possible when the project is completed. After it is woven, the blanket will be fulled.

 

This class is from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.
