Make and Weave on Your Own Backstrap Loom [3-day workshop]


  • 3420 West Hospital Avenue Chamblee, GA, 30341 United States (map)

Backstrap looms are very ancient, simple looms that are still used by indigenous weavers around the world to weave everything from narrow simple bands to wide pieces of cloth with complex patterns. They are nothing more than sticks and yarn tensioned between a stationary object and a belt or strap worn around your hips, which makes them cheap, easy, and quick to make as well as lightweight, portable, efficient, and compact. Ready to give it a try? In this workshop, you'll learn how to set up your loom, measure a continuous warp (in the ancient Karen weaving tradition) , make a cloth belt/backstrap, make string heddles, tension your warp, and weave about two yards of 6-inch wide plain-weave cloth on your new loom.
