FULL#106 INKLE KROKBRAGD SHEEP by JOAN SHERIDAN WED 9 AM TO 4PM
Workshop Description Band weaving is a great way to take your weaving on the road. If you already know how to weave simple plain weave on an inkle, then krokbragd is a great “next step.” Krokbragd is loom controlled and allows you to make pictures. It falls between plain weave and pick up patterning in complexity. In this class we will make a flock of sheep all in a row. You will learn about the structure, and how to set up the loom and weave. Students must make 60 double string heddles prior to class, instructions here: https://heritagespinning.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/making_double_heddles_handout.pdf.
Participants should bring: 60 premade heddles, inkle loom (miniature looms do not work well for this technique—a longer weaving area such as that found on the Schacht or Ashford standard inkles is best), scissors, measuring tape, note taking materials.
Material fee: $15, includes: yarn used in class, miscellaneous weaving aids, handouts.
Homework: bring supplies, including 60 premade heddles.
Class Limit: 10
