Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom (Ages 12-14)

Learn how to weave on a rigid heddle loom, or table-top loom! We'll warp a rigid heddle loom using the direct warping method. This method is unique to rigid heddles and quick to set up so you can start weaving in no time. You'll finish the class with a plain weave scarf, but don’t let the term plain weave fool you! Plain weaves 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.
