If you have or want an inkle loom but don’t know how to warp it, help is on the way. In this session you will learn how to make string heddles, plan a warp and warp the loom. We’ll discuss which yarns work well, which should be avoided. Color determines the pattern in inkle weaving, so we will cover color selection as well. While this class is offered for those taking the class on weaving edgings, you do not have to take both classes.
