Weaving on a 4-harness Floor Loom Autumn Retreat
with Alice Seeger
October 4 - 7, 9am- 5pm (plus open studio nights til 9pm)
Spend a week learning to weave in Beautiful Belfast Maine.
Each day will include a combination of structured group class, individual instruction, supported studio time, "plus play time" to enjoy the tastes & sights of Belfast Harbor on Penobscot Bay.
This retreat is perfecct for beginners or for someone who needs a refresher of weaving knowledge and experience.
The class will cover the language of weaving, and how to read a pattern. We will explore various weave structures, and practice making "draw-downs" of them. Alice will work one-on-one with each student to design and plan your own project. You could choose to weave a wool scarf, a cotton table runner or some colorful dishtowels. There will be lots of supported Studio Time to get your loom warped then weave off your project.
Some lessons may take place outdoors (weather permitting) and we will take breaks for yoga stretching, walks, and even a cruise around the harbor. Yummy snacks will be available to keep up your strength.
