WEAVING I: Rigid Heddle Virtual Class Sesson One December 10

December 10 @ 1:00 am - 3:00 pm

 This introductory weaving workshop will get you started weaving on a rigid heddle loom in about 2 hours. We use a quick method to warp and weave a sampler that teaches a variety of weaves.

In the first in-person session you will learn to warp the loom and begin weaving

Online videos will lead you through the process of making a sampler that teaches you several more techniques. Unlimited virtual sessions will direct you through all the steps to complete a sampler wall hanging including the finishing techniques.

The second in-person session provides an opportunity to ask questions and troubleshoot problems.
