Finger weaving class - November - December 2023
Finger weaving class application form. The deadline to register for this class will be October 19 2023
In this online zoom class students will learn the basics of finger weaving starting with a basic friendship bracelet and progressing through several different patterns and structures found in several French-Canadian and Métis finger woven sashes. The technique is great for those who want a low-tech, easily transportable method to create a dense, warp-faced structure, suitable for bags, belts, neckscarves, and straps.
The online zoom classes will take place from 6 PM to 8 PM starting (central time in north America), Tuesday, November 7 2023, and will run for six weeks until December 12, 2023. Students will be mailed a starter kit which will contain two set up starter pieces, as well as all materials necessary for the first two classes. Students will need to provide yarn for the subsequent next set of projects. Also included in the starter kit, students will receive a copy of Carol James's book Fingerweaving Untangled as well as her fingerweaving DVD Fingerweaving Instructions. Students will also have access to a webpage with several extra support materials. Each zoom class will be recorded and posted to this webpage for the students to review as many times as they wish. Students will have access to this page for a month after the end of class.
This class will be taught by Carol's daughter, Claire Sparling.
