Intro to Inkle Loom Weaving

The Inkle Loom is a very popular small-style loom built for weaving thin bands of sturdy cloth. With cloth widths of 1-4 inches, inkle loom weaving is perfect for making key chains, belts, instrument straps, pet leashes, bag straps, and so much more!

In this workshop you will learn how to design, set up, and weave on an inkle loom. Participants will weave a 1” wide and up to 50” long band that can be cut and transformed into key chains, bag straps, and more! This class will give you the foundational knowledge to tackle the endless styles of inkle patterns.

The registration fee includes all weaving materials. Inkle looms will be provided to participants for the duration of the workshop, however, they are not to leave the weaving workshop space. A selection of weaving threads in various colours will be provided, though participants are welcome to purchase any additional colours from the shop.
