It's true! I've been bitten by yet another bug of the crafting variety. I'm taking a weaving class!
I'm taking my class at Carly Goss Studios in Baltimore. I love that I found an alternative to The Mannings full week weaving course. Although I would love a week of weaving - I just don't have the time off I need for that class. I opted for this one since it's on Saturdays. So for the next 6 weeks I'll be here on Saturday mornings:
I took a "pre-class" last Wednesday where I learned to make my warp (the legnthwise structure of a woven object). Saturday was spent learning how to get the warp on the loom. This is a process that is much more involved that I had expected! Take a look at some of my progress:
Next week we will finish threading the heddles, and maybe... just maybe start weaving!
I'm very excited to learn more!
