Pin Loom Weaving - Workshop at Handcraft Studio School

  • Handcraft Studio School 5885 Doyle Street Emeryville, CA 94608 (map)

Pin Looms are small frames with a series of pins set strategically around the circumference. Yarn is wound around the pins in a specified pattern (a sort-of warp) and then woven through (weft). You only have to weave through half as many times as on a normally warped loom, so it's fast. The finished piece of cloth has a finished selvage all the way around, so it can stand alone or easily be joined to other squares to make larger projects. The looms are small (we will be working on a 4" square frame), so they're portable and easy to pick up ... but harder to put down. There are hundreds of ideas and patterns for things you can make out of your small weavings; we will be making a set of coasters/cocktail napkins, and additional patterns and inspirational ideas will be included in your instruction package. 

All of the material for your coasters/cocktail napkins will be provided as well as the opportunity to purchase your own pin loom at the conclusion of the class for $30.
