The Sixth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival approaches and we cannot wait!
The Festival will be held at the Oxford Powerhouse on Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30, 2016, with some additional classes and opening reception on Thursday, January 28, 2016. Every day, we will post information about one of the 22 classes and information about one of the participating vendors. Our featured class today is Introduction to Weaving on an Inkle Loom.
Roiana Buckmaster will teach Introduction to Weaving on an Inkle Loom on Thursday, January 28, 2016 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Have you ever looked at the big harness looms and imagined yourself a weaver? This class is your chance to find out! We will use a Mini Inkle Loom to explore weaving with a simple heddle system to create a basic warp-faced fabric that will introduce you to some of the principles used in weaving on the multiple harness looms. You will learn to warp your loom, tie heddles, create 2 different sheds to pass the shuttle through, how to keep your edges tidy, how to fix a broken warp thread, and how to begin and end your project. Class fee includes a handcrafted wooden loom and shuttle for you to keep, along with the yarn for your class project. This class will cost $70
