Continuous Strand Weaving Class w/ Hannah Wallace

Continuous Strand Weaving Class w/ Hannah Wallace

Continuous strand weaving is a truly unique & quick method of weaving which can be done on a variety of frame looms, which results in a fabric that is woven on the bias (diagonal)

The Loom is not warped separately; it is warped as you weave. There is little or no waste and it is self finishing!

You can make fun plaids with self striping and some variegated yarns - no math required.
