Weaving workshop will be offered at Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center from April 15-18. In this workshop you will: weave cotton placemats or a table runner; choose one of several patterns; color-and-weave, plaid, or stripes; begin with a naked loom (either a rigid heddle or a four-shaft loom); learn how to dress the loom and weave; choose one of the several lace patterns for either loom type; learn easy ways of weaving lace on a rigid heddle loom; and weave with wool, rayon, and/ or cotton. This class is designed to teach the basics of weaving. The course is mostly hands-on, with short lectures and demonstration and is unique in that students will see the process on both rigid heddle and four-shaft looms. Advantages of each loom will be discussed. Students will learn about both direct and indirect warping (two methods of getting yarn onto the loom). This class also serves as a great refresher course for those who haven’t warped a loom in a long time. Students will be shown a variety of more advanced handwovens, as inspiration. Participation is limited to 12 for a better instructor-participant ratio. Loom preference will be determined by order of class registration. Price includes loom use and yarn, expert instruction, meals and lodging. For more information, call (434) 248-5444.

Due to snow days, Buckingham County Public Schools will have school on Friday, March 9. This was originally deemed as a non-school day for students but school will now be in session on this day due to recent bad weather.
