The White River Craft Center Weaving Studio has been in operation since 2002 and during this time many students have learned to weave. Yarn, looms and weaving equipment hve been generously donated to the studio. We have five table looms of varying weaving widths, four 4-shaft floor looms and three 8-shaft floor looms of varying weaving widths. We also have a 4-shaft floor loom with a 12 foot wide weaving width.
Classes in beginning weaving, frame loom weaving, inkle loom weaving, warping review, color, selvedges, drafting, and an intermediate block weave class are offered throught out the year. A few looms are set up for anyone to come and weave which is a great resoure for those wanting to learn weaving and to spend time at this ancient craft. If you are interested in weaving on a loom in the studio or would like to take a class, please contact the Craft Center at 728-8912.
