Rebekah Foote will be sharing a new warping technique that employs clasping on the warp instead of the weft that produces a tapestry effect in the finished product. While originally developed on the rigid heddle loom, it can also be done on a floor or table loom. The purpose of this one-day class is to learn the technique by warping a 12 inch wide sample that can be taken home for further investigation.
When: Sat., Oct., 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Rose Room, Loose Park, KCMO
Registration: Check your e-mail for registration form
What to bring:
- Rigid heddle loom (or Cricket) with 10 dent reed*
- 3/2 cotton in at least two contrasting colors
- Warping peg
- Two three-inch (minimum) “C” clamps
- Threading hook
- Brown paper six feet long

*If you don’t have a rigid heddle loom, bring what you have and we’ll show you how to make it work. In this case, you’ll also need to bring a 15 inch (or longer) dowel rod.
