Handloom Weaving Course – Geelong


Open up the potential of the four shaft loom !

Ilka’s hand-loom weaving course introduces a hand-picked collection of beautiful new structures, design elements and treatments for weavers ready to extend their repertoire. We learn about wonderful kinetic block weaves, spaced warps, colour & weave design, altered setts, inlay and the potential of combination twills. Tips and techniques for warping with a mill, pre-dyeing yarns and post-felting your cloth will also be explored.

6 fortnightly classes scheduled over 3 months to allow for weaving time at home on looms provided for your use.
