In this three-day class you will learn the principles of turned krokbragd, how to dress the inkle loom, including setting up supplementary heddles, and how to weave this loom-controlled structure.

On the first day you will weave a sheep band and on the second and third days you will design at least one band and begin weaving it. The magic in this easy-to-weave structure comes in the dressing of the loom. Weaving is all loom-controlled and goes nearly as fast as weaving plain weave, yet you get a much more complex looking band. Each student should be able to weave two bands and may be able to begin a third. Emphasis will be placed on fully understanding the structure.
