New to weaving but always wanted to try? Learn how to weave on a rigid heddle loom in this full day workshop. Inexpensive and portable, the rigid heddle loom is the equivalent of a 2-harness loom and provides a great introduction to weaving simple, light fabric pieces such as placemats, table runners, scarves and shawls. Participants will learn from fiber artist Nancy McRay how to set up (warp) a loom and how to make a plain weave fabric. Translating basic instructions from popular magazines and weaving vocabulary will also be covered.
All registrants will be provided with a suggested supply list. Participants are strongly encouraged to supply their own rigid heddle loom, however a few looms will be available on a first-come, first served basis. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a loom or if you have questions regarding where to purchase a rigid heddle loom.
All skill levels are welcome.
