I am so excited to finally announce the launch of my complete video course, Welcome to Weaving: Tips and Tricks to Weaving on a Frame Loom from Start to Finish!
When I began weaving there was no one to teach me. I cringe thinking of the first wall hangings that I created, which either fell apart or were so messy that they wouldn't hang straight! Most of my techniques were self-taught with trial and error until eventually I felt comfortable with my methods.
I always wished that there was a video course for this beautiful craft that I could have followed when I first began my weaving journey. I didn't know my 'warp' from my 'weft' and I thought 'heddle' was a type of Swedish snow sled.
So... after years of questions from my followers I have put together a complete online video course! It includes a 40 page introduction booklet as well as 13 private video lessons where you can weave along with me to finish your first 'sampler weave'. It's up close and personal, and is sure to teach you something new!
I'm so excited! This project has been under wraps for quite a while. Yes, I hate listening to myself - but I know that it will answer many of the questions that I am asked, over and over, from beginner weavers.
Even if you can't make it to a workshop with a weaving master or don't have any fellow weavers in your local area you can still learn all of the skills you need to know. Welcome to Weaving!
In this course I answer the following questions, among others.
Why should I weave upside down?
How do I make shapes, like curves?
How do I attach the tapestry to a bar?
What is the best type of yarn to use for my warp... what about my weft?
Where can I purchase warp string and needles?
How do I keep the sides of my weave straight instead of curving in?
How do I finish a weave so that it doesn't fall apart after cutting it off the loom?
What is the secret method to keeping a clean back for minimal finishing work?
What are the basic stitches I need to know?
How do I set up my loom with a high density warp?
