Design and Weave a Repp Band

This program is sold out. Please call 612-871-4907 to be added to a waitlist.

This course takes place online over two Sundays, January 21 and 28, from 10 am–12 pm Central Time both sessions.

Join Swedish textile artist and educator Kerstin Neumüller for two online sessions to design and start weaving a repp band on a small rigid heddle style band weaving loom. The first session will focus on how to create different patterns in woven repp bands, a style in which warp threads tightly cover the weft threads. Kerstin will share a variety of possible patterns, giving students a starting place for designing their own band. Students will then use any small rigid heddle style loom they have on hand and their own yarn to prepare the warp and weft for weaving a repp band in the second class. This virtual class is an excellent option for students who need a refresher on band weaving, or for anyone who owns Kerstin’s book Simple Weave but wants to work alongside her live. Wide ranging discussion of project options on small looms, materials, and tips for weaving bands will fill in during work time. Suitable for ages 12+.

This is a live virtual class taught over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities. To participate in this class, students must have their video on.

Students provide their own materials for this virtual class; please see the full materials list here.
