Finishing Techniques

Fridays 10-12

Nov  9, 16, Dec 7, 14

            Amazing fabrics can be achieved from the same cloth by varying the way it is finished after it comes off the loom. This  class examines  the qualities of several types of common yarns such as bamboo, cotton, linen , alpaca, silk etc. by pushing the limits of wet and dry finishing techniques,.

            Each student is  assigned one type of yarn and weaves a  long sample cloth  at home in plain weave.  This strip is then cut  into pieces to experiment with  various finishing techniques  that  we will be discuss in class. Students will try 6-8 techniques on their cloth  and  also weave  enough so every student receives one  unfinished sample from their warp. Everyone will record their results  to exchange with the rest of the class.

$100 + sharing the cost of yarns used. (* $90 with studio card)

(Minimum of  4 students needed)
