About this experience

This is a weaving workshop for beginners on the inkle loom. It will take place over two half days. You will learn how to dress the loom and get it ready for weaving, as well as how to weave on the loom. In the second session, you will prep your loom for a second project with your own yarns.


Inkle bands are densely woven bands that have multiple uses - weave your own camera and guitar straps, lanyards, shoelaces and bag straps. They may be woven to form larger pieces of fabric or directly into bags and baskets. You can customise the bands with names or initials. These straps are non-stretchy and very sturdy and able to withstand high tension and are long-wearing. Inkle looms may also be used to do tablet or card weaving. 


Your workshop package includes a Schacht Inkle Loom valued at $191 as well as a copy of the book - Inkle Pattern Directory - valued at $48. The Schacht Inkle Loom comes with a belt shuttle that you will use for weaving. The book covers many possible weaving techniques and 400 projects on inkle looms. It is a useful resource for all beginner weavers on an inkle loom.
