Twining is a simple finger weaving technique using a warp and weft where the weft threads are twisted around the warp. It is one of the oldest weaving techniques known and has been used to create everything from rugs to bags to baskets. In this class we will create a small pouch. Multiple family members are welcome to share in the class as long as they are using the same tablet or computer.
