This is an introduction to hand weaving on a rigid heddle loom.
Rigid-heddle looms are small, easy to store, and simple to set up.
While the word "rigid" might suggest limited options, this loom style allows for versatile patterns and techniques.
In this workshop you will learn how to select your weaving materials, warp the loom and weave a lovely runner or scarf in your chosen colours, all in one day.
You will also learn:-
Basic weaving terminology
Prepare a warp using the direct warping method
Warp the loom
Weave your cloth
