Before this summer became the summer of my parent's divorce, it was going to be the "Summer of Fiber Arts." I'm taking the beginning spinning class at the weaving works at the end of the month, and last Friday, I started my WEAVING CLASS!
The weaving class is every Friday for eight weeks, for three hours apiece. This week we learned about warps, all the terms, and got our first homework assignment, warping up the table loom!
Warp threaded through the beater:
Looks like a comb, right?
Scout exploring the back of the loom , where the warp goes through the hettles.
I finished my homework, as we were supposed to put the warp through the hettles in a 4, 3, 2, 1 pattern. Next week, we'll hopefully start some actual weaving!
I can't wait. I'm trying to research some projects. I know I want to make something for my Mom.
