Hand painted warp on loom
Completed project cloth
The project for this class uses a hand painted warp*. Once the warp is woven, the material will be sewn into a bag or a pillow–student’s choice. Students will be able to pick from a variety of beautiful hand painted warps.
Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild provides all equipment and supplies that are needed: floor loom, yarn, shuttles, etc.
This is CHG’s first floor loom camp for ages 14-18
* A warp is the threads on a loom over and under which other threads are passed to make cloth.
