Both workshops are suitable for students proficient at warping an inkle loom and being comfortable with weaving plain weave. Annie will share tips for warping, making heddles, fixing mistakes, starting and stopping, and keeping selvages straight.

Time & Location

Westminster Presbyterian Church, 3235 Pope Ave, Sacramento, CA 95821, USA


The horizontal bar pickup technique is commonly used by indigenous weavers in North, Central and South America. We will look at woven samples to discover several variations on this technique and discuss charting methods. Students will warp their looms, and work with printed patterns to develop their own designs on the loom. She will also demonstrate how to temporarily remove and replace the warp, as well as how to cut the final project off the loom and handle it when it is complete.

Students should bring sack lunches and beverages. The kitchen will not be available for use due to a church function.
