On the Swedish Draw Loom
Damask is an ancient weaving technique dating back before the 13th century. The origin of the word is from Damascus. During the Crusades in Syria, the Italians learned the technique thus bringing the it back to Europe. Damask is a self-patterned weave, rich in color and much freer when creating patterns. The patterns are created by changing the emphasis of warp and weft.
The Loom Room is blessed to have a Damask loom warped and ready for students. Classes are 1 hour long. You will be walked through the basic structure of the loom, the how-to’s and the possibilities of the loom.
Class Fee: $50 per 3 Hour Session
