Weave a Kimono Jacket
$240 – Plus Materials

Friday May 7 and Saturday May 8th 10AM to 4PM
The goal is to come out with a jacket made with handwoven fabric and to learn how to make other garments using handwoven fabric.
We will be spending the first day, Jan 30, with planning the garment, the warp and the threading. You should leave that day with the dimensions for your warp, color placement ideas and your yarn ordered.
We will be working with Cotton that Beth will order for us. You then have six weeks to weave and finish your fabric.
Then on March 12th and 13th we will get together and actually finish the jackets. You may have some embellishments to do at home it depends on what you want.
We have had a lot of interest with this class and I hope you can join
