The Appalachian Arts Craft Center has generously loaned us the inkle looms to use for this class. All other materials are included in the class fee. Class size is limited to 6 students. Each student will leave with at least one completed key ring.
Inkle weaving is a type of warp-faced weaving where the shed is created by manually raising or lowering the warp yarns, some of which are held in place by fixed heddles on a loom known as an inkle loom. A table-top inkle loom was patented by Mr. Gilmore of Stockton, CA in the 1930s, but inkle looms and weaving predate this by centuries.
