JUL 12 – AUG 30 1:30 PM TO 3:30 PM 950 Rice Rd, Ridgeland, MS 39157 Marcy Petrini will teach Four Shaft Beginning Weaving. Class is held each Wednesday from Wednesdays 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, July 12 to August 30, 2023.
Cost is $280. Using just one threading, participants will be able to weave four different table mats on the same warp, using different treadlings. Students choose their own weaving structures based on experience and preference ranging from twills to block weaves with one or two wefts.

Participants must know how to wind a warp and dress the loom. Directions for the various weaving structures will be provided. Weekly discussions will cover how to read a draft, how to change the loom tie-up and other weaving topics found in the 96-page monograph Planning a Project which is also provided.

All equipment is available to students for the duration of the class during which the projects must be completed. Participants will provide their own yarns, appropriate for the tablemats, which will be discussed in the 1st session.

Classes will be held in the Weaving Loft at the Bill Waller Craft Center. The class is taught by Craftsmen’s Guild Fellow Marcy Petrini who has been teaching at the Craft Center and around the country for many years.
