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. We will give you brief instructions on how to read the pattern you select then you are on your own for hours of fun. There is one morning and one afternoon session available each day. Morning is 10a-1-p. Afternoon is 2p-5p. Supply fee is based on number of inches woven.
Class Fee: $50 per 3 Hour Session
