Floor Loom Weaving for Beginners:

Weaving Free-style without Fear


by Suzy Hokanson

Class Description

Take the fear out of weaving on a Floor Loom. Participants will come to our Oatland Fiber Studio two consecutive Sundays and create a short narrow warp each Sunday. They will discover how to put the yarns on the loom and start to weave. Participants will be able to weave during the week and be ready to wind a second warp the next Sunday when they will also discover freestyle weaving techniques to explore the joy of weaving without fear.


Participants will bring two balls of fingering to sport weight cotton yarn (approx. 350 yds) in contrasting colors.  Also bring any leftover bits of yarn from other projects.  Yarn is available at our local yarn shops: The Frayed Knot or UnWind Yarn and Gifts.


Each participant will be able to use the loom for one month rent free. After that time they may rent the loom from the guild month by month.
