Course Description

Learn all about weaving with inlay and make a set of pillows along the way. Together, we will explore three different types of inlay: plain weave inlay, Theo Moorman inlay, and a patterned inlay. Learn to warp with two warp chains, then jump into weaving with these techniques. This course will open a whole new world of ideas!

What You'll Learn

  • Warping: For this project, we have two separate warps. You'll learn the steps to winding and warping with two warps.
