In this class you will learn how to use a pick-up stick to manipulate your threads. A pick-up stick is used to create complex designs on a simple loom. In South America, for instance, weavers use this device to fabricate wonderfully intricate and vivid patterns on their cloth. You will weave an attractive scarf using this new skill. You can choose to use one of the four finishing techniques that you have learned (knots, overcast, fringe twist, or Italian hemstitch) to begin and finish your scarf. You will be weaving with slubby-textured cotton yarn.
You can finish the project at home.
Please remember to bring the following to class:
a 10-dent reed, one 12” stick shuttle and one 16” pick-up stick
paper or sticks for winding on
lacing on cord
cardboard or sticks for front beam
