Join us on Saturday September 15 and Sunday September 16 for an Immersion Weaving class!
This class is perfect if you’ve never woven before. It’s also perfect if you already have a loom but are looking to improve your skills. If you don’t have a loom, we’ll rent you one for the weekend. If you fall in love with weaving (and we think you will) we’ll apply your rental to the purchase of the loom!
Rigid Heddle Immersion
Class Level: Beginner to Advanced Beginner
Class Description: In this course you will be able to jump right into rigid-heddle weaving if you haven’t tried it, or bump up your current skills if you’re already a weaver.
During the 2 days, you’ll learn how to easily warp the loom using the direct-warping method. Then explore warp- and weft-faced weave structures and color-and-weave patterns, and learn to use pick-up sticks to create patterns that are woven into your cloth. Learn tips to keep your selvedges straight and practice different ways to finish the ends.
If you haven’t tried rigid-heddle weaving, this class will start you on the right path so you can go home with weaving confidence. If you are already a rigid- heddle weaver, don’t miss this chance to refine and review techniques, round out your rigid-heddle skills, and develop your confidence.
