weave |wi:v|; verb (past: wove |wəʊv| ; past participle: woven |ˈwəʊv(ə)n| or wove) [ with obj. ]
Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. The longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling.The method in which these threads are inter woven affects the characteristics of the cloth. Cloth is usually woven on a loom, a device that holds the warp threads in place while filling threads are woven through them. A fabric band which meets this definition of cloth can also be made using other methods, including tablet weaving, frame weaving, back-strap, or other techniques without looms.

The aim of the class is to not only cover a wide range of styles but also encourage the student to develop his/her own distinctive voice as a weaver.
