This is a 2-day class that will cover how to take a disassembled barn loom from pieces to a smoothly working loom.
Among the topics to be covered are how to identify the various beams and their functions, how to discern the miscellaneous pieces that often accompany the looms, which pieces are weaving related and which are completely unrelated. Harness set up, types of reeds, lease sticks, warping boards, shuttles, warping mill, raddles, pulleys, horses, treadles, and most important – direct tie-up for a four harness loom.
This will be a relaxed class for a small group of people who will assemble two barn looms from pieces.
