Creative Arts Center Weaving Classes

Come to the Creative Arts Center of Dallas and learn to weave!

Location: Creative Arts Center, Dallas

Go far beyond the potholder phase! In this class you will use rigid heddle looms to create woven cloth. You will learn to weave using plain weave on a two harness rigid heddle loom. You will be introduced to weaving terminology, equipment, and history while getting step by step guidance to plan and execute your first weaving project. Each student will complete a sample placemat and then choose either two placemats or one scarf to weave. Classes meet each Wed from 6:30-9:30 for four weeks.
