ONSITE: Rigid Heddle Loom Weaving

Learn how to weave on a rigid heddle loom! We'll warp a rigid heddle loom using the direct warping method. This method is unique to rigid heddles and fast to set-up so you can start weaving in no time. You can expect demonstrations on maintaining straight selvedges, dealing with weft tails, changing colors, and more. Students will finish the class with a plain weave scarf, but don’t let the term plain weave fool you! Plain weave can create many unique and fun patterns just with the use of color. Rigid heddle looms are an accessible introduction to weaving; looms are much smaller than traditional floor looms, are portable and much more affordable.
