Inkle Loom Weaving for Beginners


Even if you’ve never woven anything before, you can be weaving on an inkle loom in almost no time. I’ll explain what an inkle loom is, how it works and what you can make with it. I’ll show you what yarns and threads to use, how to make your heddles, how to warp your loom and get started weaving. You’ll learn basic tabby weaving as well as some more detailed techniques, and you’ll learn how to read, understand and even draft your own designs. Last, I will show you how to finish off the bands you make, and a number of uses for them. So grab your loom and let’s get started!
