Program: The title for Robin’s program is “What is an Inkle”. If you are interested in learning about weaving, Inkle weaving is an inexpensive way to get started. Or if you have an Inkle loom gathering dust in your closet Robin will give you some ideas to get you excited again. Robin show and talk about some of the different versions of Inkle looms and what to look for if you want to buy or build one. She will also give you some ideas on what to do with those simple Inkle bands, beyond book marks.
Robin Wilton has a BFA with a concentration in weaving from Colorado State University. Also known as the “weavinglady”, Robin has been weaving for over 40 years, starting with Inkle weaving in high school and more complex structures in college and workshops. Although she has done more complex weaving techniques she still loves the simplicity and symmetry of Inkle weaving. She has taught many Inkle weaving workshops all over Colorado.
