Weaving Class Day 4

The final day! We spent about half the time weaving. Then our instructor’s friend stopped by to tell us about the dye garden here in Baltimore, Blue Light Junction, and how you dye things from indigo. Who knew you had to feed the indigo dye pot? It was really interesting! She also showed us some samples of work she did using the dye.

We talked about how to wash our weavings and how to finish them off. I was the only one who got to the end of my project! I am debating if I want to hem it using my sewing machine or create fringe.

I’m happy with how it came out! I did random strips of twill and then plain weave because my goal was to finish in class. We have access to the studio for the rest of the month but since I have my own looms, I don’t really need that. I know one of the other students wants to do a small second project and another wasn’t able to attend much of the classes so she has to catch up.
