Rigid Heddle Weaving, also referred to as a Knitter's Loom, is a student friendly beginners level form of weaving. This is the equivalent of a 2-harness loom, this type of weaving lends itself to light work, such as place mats, dishtowels, scarves, shawls or tapestry panels. You will learn basic weaving terminology, direct warping method, the tabby weave structure, along with fringe and finishing techniques. We will also discuss yarn selections for different projects, as well as basic troubleshooting while your project is on the loom. You will have a student loom which you may take home each week to complete your project for that week. You will complete two projects during this class, a sample tapestry as well as a scarf.
Class fee includes instruction and rental of student loom.
Class is limited to 3 students.
Materials fee applies and varies with the selection of art yarns for your final project. Students will have the opportunity to purchase their student looms at the completion of class at a discounted student rate.
