Essential Weaving
This is an overview of the essential concepts of weaving — looking at looms and tools, yarn for weaving, calculating and winding warps, and the fundamental movements of weaving.

For many, weaving can seem like a huge undertaking with lots of expensive and equipment attached to it, so it doesn't seem very accessible. However, I'm here to show you that the core of weaving is actually very simple and there are so many paths to follow that it's very possible to find the right kind of weaving for you.

Ultimately, there is an essential body of knowledge in weaving that is helpful to know, regardless of what equipment you are using to weave that cloth. And so this course is designed to be exactly that — an overview of the essential concepts so that you can move on from here and work on your rigid heddle loom, your multi shaft loom, or whatever loom you choose to work with.  After this course, you’ll be able to understand how and why they work, how all forms of weaving are similar as well as how they are distinct from each other.

In this course we'll cover subjects such as:

  • Looms and tools
  • Yarns designed for weaving
  • How to plan your weaving project
  • How to wind a warp
  • Tips and tricks on how to keep weaving pain-free and fun

We hope you'll join us for Essential Weaving!
