Handweaving a Towel Collection


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $650
Material Fee: $65

Learn to make the most out of dressing your loom once, by designing in the tie up and in the treadling patterns. Twills are one of the most versatile structures in weaving, where with a little bit of preparation and design one can come up with a unique collection of patterns all from the same threading! As a towel production weaver, Tegan Frisino has learned how to make the most out of each warp and keep things interesting as she goes. Participants will make a diverse set of hand towels, exploring how they can make each one unique depending on the modifications they make in the draft. Those attending must be comfortable dressing the loom independently.

*Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
