Class Length

Description

Explore the Pampa Loom continuous strand weaving technique to create the components of jackets, vests and pull-overs. Suitable for all skill levels; especially beginners. We will create jackets and vests in small groups: each student completing sections with group finishing and joining of the garment components. These looms allow even the newest beginner to create garments that fit with little wasted yarn, minimal investment, small space, and small amounts of time. If you have too many shawls, runners, and wraps because you cannot bear to cut your beautiful hand weaving, this is the class for YOU!
