Introduction to Weaving on an Inkle Loom


Have you ever looked at the big looms and wondered if weaving was for you? 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 Poplar wood loom and shuttle for you to keep, along with the threads for your class project.


The class fee includes both the materials fee and the workshop fee.

Roiana Buckmaster lives in Mt Pleasant, TN, working a small farm with her husband to build flocks of Icelandic Sheep and Heritage Poultry. She was given knitting needles at age six (to keep out from underfoot), embroidery at ten (to sit still) and plunged into the rabbit hole of the fiber arts world from there. Roiana has been teaching for 8 years, both at fiber festivals across the South and at the shop on the farm. She attributes her skills to Grandma Irene, and promised to teach those skills to others.
