Overshot is an advanced weaving technique that uses two shuttles to produce more intricate patterns. An overshot pattern may employ a combination of colors and/or yarns to achieve a variety of styles. The class will acquaint the student with the overshot process, provide several overshot patterns, and allow him/her to complete a simple overshot project.
This class is for experienced weavers who will begin the day threading the loom they will use in class.
Looms, warping boards and shuttles will be provided. The kit fee includes a needle, yarns for the warp and weft, additional patterns, note pad and weaving references to pursue. Bring scissors and your questions. A task lamp would also be helpful. Students should bring a bag lunch. Beverages will be provided.
