In Schacht’s Pattern Weaving Mini-Course, Sienna Bosch will walk you through the steps of warping, weaving, and finishing a gorgeous satchel bag. This course will be hosted on Schacht’s School of Textile Arts online platform and is ideal for weavers who are new to pattern weaving.
This course will release during Spinning & Weaving Week; it will remain available after that.

Introduction to Inkle Weaving
Date: October 9, 2021 from 9 am to 4 pm MST
Location: Schacht Spindle Company in Boulder, Colorado
Cost: $95 (includes materials)
Instructor: Sienna Bosch
Inkle looms are simple looms that allow you to make guitar straps, belts, bookmarks, and so much more. In this class, we will make a set of fun keychains. You will learn the foundations of inkle weaving, from warping the loom to weaving. We’ll weave simple patterns and begin exploring pick-up patterns. This class is for beginning inkle loom weavers—no experience necessary.
The class includes all materials and use of an inkle loom while we meet. If you want to take your loom home, you can purchase it at the end of the class.
