Saturday February 6, 2021 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Note: Guild meetings through May 2021 will be virtual; zoom coordinates will be sent out the week before the event.

This program will focus on ways to embellish or add to plain weave on the loom. Interest can be added to plain weave with a variety of ways of finger manipulating the warp threads or by the addition of supplemental threads inserted into the web. We will look at such techniques as Leno, Spanish Eyelet, Brooks Bouquet, inlaid pattern, loops, Soumak, wrappings and Rya.
