Space Available Fiber Forum

I’ll be teaching one of my favorite techniques at this year’s Fiber Forum at Arrowmont in Gatlinburg, April 4 to 7.
First we’ll weave, then we’ll add colorful merino fibers, and felt everything together.
We’ll be using plain weave in the class, but I’ve been experimenting with other weave structures lately. Below are some of the textures that happen with this easy technique. Of course, you can check in with me ahead of time to work out exceptions to plain weave based on your experience. Rigid heddle looms work great and some looms may be available on site. Yes, there will be rolling, but forget about all those rumors you’ve heard about hours of hard labor. This is a great way to use up your collection of white yarns, or a mixed warp of everything and the kitchen sink. But don’t worry if you aren’t a weaver, this simple structure is easy to get on the loom. And don’t worry if you’ve never felted before, results are guaranteed. You’ll go home with a wonderful scarf, and the inspiration and knowledge for what comes next. Beginners to advanced in either technique will love this combination.

Fiber Forum is a fun regional fiber arts conference held at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN. There are lots of workshops to choose from, key note speakers, fashion show, and plenty of good food. The weekend is spent with people who speak your fiber art language.
