In this two-week class, students will weave (week one), cut, and sew (week two) a garment from their own fabric. Students can choose from a provided shirt, skirt, or apron pattern, which can be modified and adjusted based on experience, ambition and desired fit. We will consider the form and function of a final garment and how that should influence choices with regard to material & weave structure. In addition to winding a warp, dressing a four-post loom, weaving, and apparel construction -  students will learn project planning, fabric finishing, and tricks for cutting pattern pieces out of handwoven cloth. The class will provide each student with an end-to-end understanding of creating a piece of clothing, from yarn to fabric to garment.


Materials will be billed separately by weight.


Prerequisite: Foundations, or prior weaving experience at MSW.
