An evening devoted solely to the finishing of handwovens! Each student will be working on a pre-woven sample provided by Sara. Working on this sample she will teach you her tricks for making an evenly rolled hem in a few easy steps. Later in the day we will examine weft protectors such as overhand knots, Damascus, and Philippine edges. As well as tackle some more advanced techniques for your fringes such as 3, 4, and 5 strand flat braided fringe, twisted fringe, sennit and square knots as well as some appropriate macramé techniques. Go home with an arsenal of new techniques in your repertoire to dress up your handwoven fabrics regardless of the type of fabric that we’re making.
