Bow Loom Weaving


This class is now available, streamed or as a DVD, on Taproot Video!

"Primitive Loom" is a misnomer, I feel, because simple looms can yield complex and exquisite art. These little gems of a loom are used in Thailand to weave bands with beaded selveges, used then on the headdress of the locals. The bow loom is nearly the simplest of all loom designs, yet it does its job well: It holds the warp threads under tension. This class in always a big hit and since the students own their loom after the class, they will have many future projects to enjoy.
