Beginning and Intermediate Weaving - with Dain Daller
Do you need a refresher on warping? Is there a project you'd like assistance on, or are you new to weaving? All beginner and intermediate students are welcome in this six-week, Friday class.
Dain Daller will take students through loom terminology, basic weaving vocabulary, and techniques. By weaving a sampler, you will learn to plan and wind a warp, dress the loom front to back, create basic patterns, read drafts, and more. Students should bring a notebook, pen, scissors, and measuring tape to each class.. No experience necessary!
Materials Students should provide: All materials will be provided.
Looms: Students have use of an EVFAC floor loom for the duration of the class and one week after the class ends.
Dain Daller is an artist and weaver who lives and works in an Earthship that he and his partner built in Northern New Mexico. Their sustainable home houses three looms. Both weave under solar power, living completely off the grid, and wash their hand-woven, hand-dyed goods with rainwater collected off the roof. Dain is always looking for new techniques and combinations. He takes raw materials of silk, cotton, linen, wool, and rayon, and transforms them into beautiful weavings and felted tapestries.
