Weaving Class- Inkle Loom

Inkle Weaving is a method of band weaving. It is a warp faced weave. This means the vertical threads on the loom are the ones that show. The inkle bands can be used as decorative embellishments for clothing, key rings, bookmarks, guitar straps, belts, and even pet leashes.
