Multishaft Weaving Basics

Learn to weave! In this multishaft weaving course, we will learn how to dress a table loom and floor loom and weave a sampler project.

Ever since we began the School of SweetGeorgia, I have been waiting for the right moment to share this topic of weaving with a multishaft loom! Welcome to our first multishaft weaving course where we will learn how to dress a table loom and floor loom using the “back-to-front” method and weave a sampler project. Using the sampler as a reference, we’ll design our own project and warp the loom a second time to make a handwoven cloth of our own design. Through this course, I’ll also show you how to read a weaving draft so that you can get up and running with a variety of simple weave structures, right from the start.

The looms used in this course include:

  • Leclerc Nilus II 4-shaft floor loom (45″ wide)
  • Schacht Baby Wolf 8-shaft floor loom (26″ wide)
  • Schacht 4-shaft table loom (16″ wide)

Not to worry if you don’t have a floor loom, you can also use a table loom for the sampler project and final project. A minimum of 4-shafts is necessary for the sample weaving drafts we are working with.

If you have not yet had a chance to view our previous course which was called Essential Weaving, I encourage you to go check that out as well. Essential Weaving gives you a fundamental baseline of knowledge around different looms, the different parts of the loom, winding a warp, sitting at the loom, using a shuttle, using the tools, and more.

Of course, if you have any questions or concerns throughout the course, please feel free to drop a message into the community forum here »

Really helpful and fun project

I have just finished my sampler and it was terrific - my first project on a new David 3 Louet loom and the first time I have ever woven on a multishaft floor loom. Your multishaft course gave me the confidence to complete this project and I am so happy with the result 🙂

All expectations were met!

This course gave me a really good introduction to my new table loom and helped me a lot to understand the whole process of weaving (planning, calculating, dressing the loom etc) I feel much more prepared to start my first project with your help. And the quality of your videos is great, I could see everything I needed to, as if you were here 😉 Thank you very much!

Excellent into to multishaft weaving

This course was a great introduction to multishaft weaving. I have done some rigid heddle weaving, and I also took the Weaving Essentials course before this. This course built well off of the Essentials course and took me through everything I needed to know to get started. The videos are excellent quality and Felicia is great educator. The pace is just right.
