Liz Gipson’s Pattern Power


Sunday, May 14 from 10am-5pm (includes a 1-hour break)

Think that plain weave is all you can do on a rigid heddle loom? Meet the pick-up stick! With this simple tool you can create patterns galore.

Learn how to make weft and warp floats and when and how to combine them. In this class you will weave a small table runner. This pattern is easily translated into all sort of interiors and accessories. As with all of Liz’s classes, you aren’t just learning how to make a beautiful object, you are learning the fundamentals to weaving well.

Homework: Come to class with your pre-warped loom. You’ll receive the warping instructions after you register. Along with your 15-inch Cricket Loom and the tools that came with it, you’ll need a 10-dent rigid heddle and a pick up stick at least 9 inches long, all of which are available for purchase in the shop.

Materials: The yarn for this project is included in the class fee. Please come in to pick it up after you’ve registered. If you’re out of the area, let us know and we can mail the yarn to you.
