Workshop: Start Weaving a Repp Band

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

Get started with weaving on a rigid heddle loom in the Swedish repp band style. This one day class offers an overview to Swedish textile artist Kerstin Neumüller’s process of carving fanciful small looms and combining colors for useful bands. In the morning, Kerstin will demonstrate how to carve a Nordic style rigid heddle, after which students will have a chance to do a little carving of their own. In the afternoon, students will return to learn about the history, style and use of repp bands, in which warp threads tightly cover the weft threads. Students will then set up their own repp band on heddles and get started weaving. Students may have the option to purchase a finished heddle from Kerstin at the end of class to take home. Suitable for ages 16+.
