Hexagon Loom weaving- Teneriffe Lace on 4 inch hexagon loom

I love weaving Teneriffe Lace on the Hexagon Loom:

Here’s a how to video that focuses on techniques that I use for basic openwork Teneriffe lace on the 4 inch Hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms.

Openwork Teneriffe is quite easy to do and moves along quickly, once you have the hang of it.

I am using Kreinik Metallic thread in the video to add more lustre and sparkle to the finished piece.

Definitely work a few motifs with thread or yarn before adding in the metallic yarn as it’s tricky to work with.

Here’s a vintage booklet from the archives of the University of Arizona:

Techniques covered in this video:

1- Tips for working with Metallic threads.

2- How to warp the hexagon loom for circular weaving

3- How to work openwork Teneriffe lace on the hexagon loom. (I use a 4 inch loom in the video, but larger sizes work just fine for the openwork technique).

The next tutorial will show more advanced weaving techniques for Teneriffe lace on the  6 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge looms.

 

Happy weaving and happy lace making!
