Scottish TartanThe timeless beauty of traditional Scottish tartans are so appealing, and weaving tartan patterns is great fun. Each student will weave a traditional woman's twill dance stole or a scarf in fine wool and finish with a twisted fringe. We will also engage in discussion of Tartan history and instruction in translating tartan setts into warp plans. Tartans chosen by instructor: specific tartans available for $20 each sett.

Students weave samples in class and then take their looms home to weave two scarves on the same warp.
