Weaving Classes

One of the oldest forms of textile production in which two threads are interlaced to form fabric.

Introduction to Weaving on a Loom

 

Weaving is the process of making fabrics by interlacing the threads lengthwise and width wise commonly known as warp and weft in a regular order. The operation is performed in a machine called a loom. Two sets of yarns are interlaced, almost always at right angles to each other. One, called the warp, runs lengthwise in the loom; the other, called the filling, weft or woof, runs crosswise. The raising and lowering sequence of warp threads in various sequences gives many possible weave structures.

 

Please note that this is a very labour intensive craft and not for everyone!
