Continuous Strand Triangle Loom Weaving with Sheramy Scott
In Continuous Strand Triangle Loom Weaving, students will learn the continuous strand method of tri-loom weaving. This weaving method uses warp and weft simultaneously, and both sides at once, meeting in the middle of the triangle. It is as quick and engaging as it sounds!
This is a great introductory experience for new weavers. Experienced weavers who have not used a tri-loom will enjoy learning a new and unique technique.
Unlike traditional weaving, tri-loom weaving allows you to see the full project at once from start to finish—it really is like painting with yarn! Sheramy believes this opens opportunity for color and texture pairings that you wouldn’t think to try otherwise. She hopes those who take this workshop experience the joy of trying something new, and pushing themselves creatively.
Sheramy will teach students using a 10” loom. All techniques will translate to larger looms should students decide to acquire one in the future. Continuous strand weaving, changing yarns and yarn weights, finishing, adding fringe, and seaming will be taught. Changing yarn and yarn weights creates natural plaids and patterns. By the end of the workshop, students will have created their very own kerchief style neck wrap.
This technique is a great stash buster. Students keep the tools provided through the material fee and can go home to experiment further using their yarn stash.
Date & Time
Sunday, May 31st from 1 pm to 4 pm
In addition to the workshop registration fee, a material fee of $60.00 is payable to the instructor at the start of the workshop. The material fee covers the loom, stand, hook, and yarn. Students are welcome to bring their own yarns if desired.
About the Instructor
Growing up, Sheramy Scott’s mom was a hand weaver. Surrounded by fiber art for as long as she can remember, she fell down the fiber rabbit hole we all know so well when she learned to knit in 2014. Knitting led to hand spinning, dyeing, and weaving. Though her mom wasn’t a hand spinner, she happened to have a bag of roving and a homemade drop spindle in her closet, allowing Sherm to spend the next two months pouring over books and online tutorials. The rabbit hole opened wider and she received her first spinning wheel for Christmas that year, started dyeing her own fibers in early 2015, and opened her business, My Mother’s Daughter Handspun, later that year.
In 2016, her grandpa made her a 7’ triangle loom. Her first tri-loom project was a blanket for him. Since then, she has used her loom to create many one of a kind wearable art pieces from her handspun art yarn.
From dirty fleece to a finished project, craft brings Sherm so much joy. She hopes each person that takes a workshop with her leaves with that same joy in their new knowledge of what is created together.
