Weaving bands is fun. And weaving them on a shaft loom is even more fun! Suddenly there are few limits on width and band length. In this workshop translate inkle loom patterns into 4-shaft patterns giving you even more pattern options. Design and weave warp Krokbragdt patterns and convert simple card/tablet patterns into 4-shaft weaves. Discussions and demos include threading and beaming closely-sett yarns and choosing effective colors.
