Clasped weft, also known as weft interlock, is a creative technique that allows you to shift colors weft wise in your project. The result can resemble simple tapestry weaving but is much quicker and easier to achieve. You can create unique shapes and patterns on your warp using this fun and spontaneous technique. 

Note: this class has homework to be completed before the class starts! See below for instructions.

You will learn how to: use the clasped weft technique with 2 and 3 colors
You should already know how to: warp your loom and weave in plain weave. 
Required materials: 120–300 yards of yarn for the warp in the weight appropriate for your heddle (see below), a few different unfuzzy weft yarns slightly thinner than and in contrast to your warp yarn, and two stick shuttles. Weft yarn should be wound into balls or on cones before class.  You must have your own table or rigid heddle loom to take this class.
