INTRODUCTION TO WEAVING ON A RIGID HEDDLE LOOM

If you have wanted to try your hand at weaving, this three part workshop is the perfect place to start.  Participants will begin by learning how to weave on a loom that is already “dressed” or prepared with a warp. Everyone will complete a soft wrap/scarf or a cotton table runner.  Focus will be on weaving skills, fringe-making and finishing options. The class size will be SMALL so that hands-on guidance is available for every step of the process. Limited to four students. ALL LEVELS WELCOME!
