Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

Useful to weavers at all skill levels, ikat is a knot-tying technique that’s wonderful for adding complexity and vibrancy to your woven work. During this workshop, students will design and weave a single ikat warp, and weft and combine it into a double ikat. Starting with a basic design, you leave with an understanding of how to use this technique to further design your own work. Come prepared to tie a lot of knots and bring rubber gloves for dyeing with indigo and other natural dyes. And come to weave! Open to all skill levels.
