Created centuries ago (Shakespeare referred to it in his classic “loves labor’s lost) the Inkle (an old english word meaning ribbon or tape) loom was and is used to create narrow bands that are ideal to make belts, trims, straps, ribbons, key rings, bookmarks, lanyards or garment hem decorations. In class you will learn to make one or more of these projects. The varieties of color and pattern are only limited by your imagination. This is a great class to learn how to weave.
