Plaid Clinic



***This class will be held inside. Masks will be required. Thank you!***

Our long awaited plaid clinic is here! During this full day clinic you will learn how to choose yarns for a plaid, how to design your plaid using a variety of techniques, we’ll discuss color theory and how it applies to our designs, and start our project! You’ll receive three plaid patterns prior to class to inspire you. Come to class prepared with at least one project in mind, complete with yarn, appropriately sized reed, loom, and warping setup (clamps, pegs, cardboard sticks or warping papers). If you feel like bringing multiple potential options, please do! 

This class is 5 hours, with a break in the middle. If class participants would like to purchase yarn for this project, I have built in a 30 minute break period you can use to shop or visit the coffee shop across the street, your choice!

Prerequisite: Students must have completed Weaving Basics or similar class or have working knowledge of the basics of rigid heddle weaving. 

Note: You must have your own loom for this class. Looms and accessories (reeds, shuttles, etc) may be purchased at the shop. Please check early about any supplies you need, as inventory and supply-chain issues can affect availability.

Looms *may* be available to rent for this class. Please contact us to inquire about a rental.
