Registration Deadline: May 2, 2021
In this two-day class you will learn the principles of turned krokbragd, how to dress the inkle loom and set up supplementary heddles and how to weave this loom-controlled
structure. On the first day you will weave a sheep band and on the second day you will design a band and begin weaving it. The magic in this easy-to-weave structure comes in the dressing of the loom.
Weaving is all loom controlled and goes nearly as fast as weaving plainweave yet you get a much more complex looking band. During the week between classes you will weave a second band on your
own to help cement what you learned to prepare you for designing your own band, which we will cover in the second day of class.
Students must have: an inkle loom (not a miniature loom -- a longer loom is easiest), a set of at least 25 string heddles, a ball of #10 crochet cotton, scissors, blue (green)
painter’s tape. Yarn to make sheep and two bands of your own design (refer to photo for sheep band colors). When learning, 8/4 is my first choice (I prefer Brassard over rug warp) but you may
use 3/2, 5/2, 10/2 or even embroidery floss.
