Weaving Immersion Class
Sep 20 @ 9:00 am – Sep 21 @ 5:00 pm

SAVE THE DATE!

Deborah Jarchow WeavingIf you’ve been wanting to learn to weave, or have a loom and want to get more out of it, this two day class is for you! You’ll have an opportunity to rent a loom if you don’t have one. The rental cost can be applied to the cost of the loom!

Join us on Friday September 20 and Saturday Sept 21 as we welcome Deborah Jarchow for a wonderful weekend of exploring the possibilities of Rigid Heddle Weaving! We’ll be in a wonderful spot in Cambria’s West Village, a short drive or a lovely 20 minute walk from the shop.

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.

We’ll be supplying you with the yarn you need to participate in the class. If you’re renting a loom, you’ll also have all the supplies you need. If you’re bringing your loom, be sure to bring everything listed but you’ll still get yarn!

Homework: None

Supplies to bring: Rigid heddle loom with at least 8” wide weaving width and 7.5 or 8 dent reed, Warping peg, threading and sley hooks, clamps, 2 brown paper grocery bags, 1 tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 shuttles, 2 pick up sticks, tapestry needle, sewing needle, scissors, tape measure, 30 yards of waste yarn (worsted weight acrylic works nicely)

Contact us if you want to make sure your loom is correct for this class!

We’ll supply the yarn you’ll use in the class, but if you want to bring your own:

Yarn – 400 yards each of 2 solid contrasting colors, or 200 yards each of 4 solid different colors of yarn.  All yarn should be worsted weight, strong, smooth, not hairy and at least 2 ply (no singles).

If you don’t have a loom, you can rent one from us! If you fall in love with weaving by the end of the weekend, we’ll apply the cost of the rental to your purchase. 

Loom Rental: If you don’t have a loom and want to try this out, we will rent a loom to you starting on Friday the 20th. You’ll be able to keep it through the weekend. At that time you can either return it OR you can apply the rental cost to the purchase of the loom! If you want to rent a loom, click here for the link after you’ve registered. The rental cost is only $50. Loom rentals are only for class participants at this time.

The class will start at 9AM on Friday, September 20 and conclude Saturday September 21 at 5PM.

Please note, the room where we will be holding the weekend workshop is up a short flight of stairs, no ramp.

Cost: $595 – Early Bird Pricing is $495 if paid by August 31. So sign up today!
