JST School of Weaving is a series of instructional lessons where weavers learn at their own pace to weave on 4 shaft looms or continue on their weaving journey with renowned and sought-after instructor and designer Jane Stafford.
Each lesson demonstrates step by step instructions and will inspire weavers to design and create the best possible cloth they can – to care about graphic, colour, hand, and drape – from beginners wondering where to start, to experienced production weavers searching for new horizons.

All the fundamentals of weaving. Warping, various methods of dressing the loom, great weaving technique, project planning, understanding sett, information about different types of looms and yarns, weaving with difficult yarns like mohair, fulling and finishing.
Season 2 - Colour & Weave
Laying the foundations of colour and design. The format is simple and easy, encouraging original design and making it accessible and fun. Concepts regarding colour theory, graphic, division of space and the architecture of design are laid down in a way that allows weavers to bring their ideas to reality.
Season 3 - Pushing the Boundaries of Plain Weave
We take an in-depth look at Plain Weave. We get really familiar with our reed: exploring denting; cramming and denting; weft-faced; warp-faced; double weave; collapse weave and supplementary warp. All of these ideas are laid down on top of what we learned in Season 2.
Season 4 - Twills on Four
We explore threadings, tie-ups, treadlings, colour and weave, big threadings, little threadings, Point Twill, Twill and Basket Weave, Shadow Weave, Weft Faced Twills and end up harnessing the power of 4 shaft looms in relation to the twill weave structure.
Season 5 - Laces
We tackle Laces with Canvas Weave, Huck, Huck with Colour and Weave effects, Bronson Spot, Atwater Bronson Lace, Blended Lace and how we can get Lace and Twills all in one piece. But we first start the year with Turned Twill, one of Jane’s favourite weave structures.

What a gift!
I’m a rusty, yet new weaver (I had stopped because too much time had gone by-and I couldn’t figure out how to restart). And Jane’s classes have me trying things I would have never known To Try! It’s so fun, and I’ve learned little tidbits that make the whole experience joyful.
I appreciate the artistry and creativity, as well as the technical skills that Jane offers. She is so gifted at teaching skills AND offering inspiration! Color, patterns, and making the right fabric for the project (cut off and re-sley at a different epi?!! I didn’t know I could do that!) I’m only on season 2, so I still have so much to learn.
Such a great gift to myself. (And my family and friends are amazed at their new tea towels!) 😂
Thank you, thank you!
Amazing app and very user friendly
The School of Weaving app is absolutely wonderful! My sister and I live miles apart but always wish we could weave together. Now we can! We are going to pick a new learning project from the JST site every month (or two) and get out of the rut of doing the same old comfortable thing. It beats the dickens out of watching television!
Thank you for making weaving exciting!
School of Weaving App
I loved the old website, but I love the App more! So excited I could add it to my streaming TV and can watch on the big screen instead of my iPad or computer. As a new weaver who is learning on her own through books and websites, finding the School of Weaving was a blessing!
