Monk's Belt on a Table Loom

Learn this timeless classic weave structure on your table loom

Learn all about the timeless and classic Monk's Belt.

Although it is a simple weave structure, it looks highly sophisticated and allows for a myriad of design possibilities for the weaver.

This course contains over 4 hours of video content and multiple printable PDFs.


This class assumes that you are familiar with your table loom including warping and dressing your loom as well as basic knowledge of reading a weaving draft.

If you do not feel confident with these aspects of table loom weaving yet, I strongly recommend that you take my Weaving on a Table Loom class first.

"Each of the 8 patterns look gorgeous ! I keep being amazed of the variations that weaving can bring.

Thanks Kelly for the wonderful course. So much time and energy you have put into this learning journey."



We begin by exploring Monk's Belt variations with a fun sampler. We will look at 8 examples that will inspire and encourage you to go further.

Then we move on to a gorgeous project. The Skinny Runner is a beautiful and eye catching piece and so enjoyable to weave.

"As always Kelly, each element is conducive to learning: written material, verbal instructions, lighting, pace, camera position(s), not to mention the beautiful designs and colors!"



To complete this class you will need the following:

* 4 shaft table loom 10” weaving width or wider

* 1 x 10 dent reed

* 3 - 4 stick shuttles longer than the width of the project or use boat shuttles if you prefer

* Reed and threading hook raddle to fit your loom

* Cross (or lease) sticks

* Warping board or frame

* Tapestry needle

* Miscellaneous - waste yarn for ties, cardboard or paper separators, scissors etc

Full yarn details will be given in the class.

This class is filmed on a 16" Ashford 8 shaft table loom but any table loom can be used. If you would prefer to weave on your floor loom, I encourage you to, providing you understand how to use your loom.

"I loved, love, loved doing this. First time I've done overshot, my first monks belt. Kelly, you made this so clear to follow, I am a visual learner, your instruction made this so easy and so very enjoyable, so much fun. Have just finished a warp to do another one!!!! Again, THANK YOU, LOVE YOUR WAY OF TEACHING. Be blessed for blessing others."
