Rigid Heddle Looms are a great way to learn about weaving. They're portable, affordable, and you can weave so many different things with them. In this class, we'll explore a number of techniques used to create textured surfaces from floats to ridges to pile weaves. Full instructions for dressing the loom will be send ahead of the class. (For those of you not comfortable dressing a loom, you can sign up for the Friday afternoon session on dressing the loom). I have a limited number of looms for rent if you don't have a loom. Hope you will join us for a fun day of weaving and learning.
