CHG Weaving Basics

The first thing we will study is DRAFTING. The study group will use the book: The Complete Book of Drafting for Handweavers by Madelyn van der Hoogt.

The WEAVING BASICS STUDY GROUP would meet the third Thursday of each month from 7pm to approximately 9pm. 

If you are interested and excited about a step-by-step approach to weaving, please contact Hazel.
