WALLIS ALLEN, LEFT, LEADING WEAVING CLASS YWCA course teaches weaving without a loom Take two small pieces of wood, a couple of balls of yarn and 10 adept fingers Manipulate according to instructions and, presto, a hand-crafted woven article That's the recipe for fun-to-do weaving taught at the YWCA's recently concluded off-loom weaving course, offered for the first time this fall. Taught by three members of the Lethbndge Handicraft Guild, Wallis Allen, Rose Jurisich and Menlyn Arms, the course was so successful the YM is offering a second ten-week session in the new year Wallis Allen says the next off-loom weaving course will begin Jan 13, with registration forms available at the YW the week of January 6 The YW can accommodate as many as 20 people in the course, and sessions are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evenings, according to Ms. Allen. Fees for the course are par- ticipants must bring their own weaving materials, but the YW will provide the wood for small hand looms As its name suggests, oil-loom weaving does not involve the large standing loom usually associated with the craft. However, the yarn is strung on a small wooden frame, which can be made in many shapes, and formed into the basic warp and weft (or woof) known to weavers Same skills involved Ms. Allen says the craft involves the same skills and prin- ciples as on-loom weaving. "Technically speaking, you should be able to make almost everything you can on a large she adds, "although you cannot make really large items, or intricately-woven patterns Under the instruction of the Handicraft Guild members, the 12 participants in the off-loom weaving course made bags, belts, wall hangings and rugs They also learned how to tie knots in a string, forming a pattern macrame, also one of the off-loom forms of weaving Ms Allen says off-loom weaving can be "quite creative." although some large-loom experts claim it is "just busy-work "We teach how to experiment with different textures and thicknesses of she describes. "It's a good way to get your foot in the door, to see if weaving interests you at all If it does, chances are you'd progress to the large loom eventually Nancy Latta, a skilled weaver who has been a member of the Handicraft Guild for the past seven years, recommends the off-loom method for beginners. "It's a good way to learn basic she says, "and you aren't involved with the expense or complications of a large floor loom. Learning the off-loom method, you can find out whether or not weaving is the craft for you."
