PA German Band Weaving - SOLD OUT LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Before there were buttons and button holes, zippers or Velcro, clothing was held together with bands or tapes.  Some were just plain linen tapes but the PA Germans and many of the Scandinavian people made their tapes with beautiful patterns and colors with this warp faced weaving.  Traditionally they used three types of looms:  the box loom, a paddle loom and a gate loom. A gate loom is just a pretty rigid heddle. Join me in this class to learn the history of the looms and weavers and learn to weave a band that can be used for dog leashes and collars, belts, headbands, book marks, curtain tie backs or upholstery trim.  You will learn to measure and cut the warp, tie it up, and weave a band.

Skill Level:  no experience necessary - anyone over age 12 welcome.
