In this workshop you will just come and weave on a loom that is set up and ready to go. A major time consuming aspect of weaving is setting up the loom, this class does not include instruction on loom set up. A typical first project could be a scarf, shawl, table runner or wall hanging.

Introduction to Weaving - 

On Rigid Heddle Looms 

No previous weaving experience needed

Class Time: 6 hours

    Instructor: Andrea Mielke Schroer

Saturday February 11 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

           Cost: $150 includes materials fee and lunch

           Class size 6-10  


Materials Fee covers warping and weaving material, and handouts.

 

Loom Rental: Some rigid heddle looms will be available for rental during class, for a nominal fee of $15.00. Please specify whether you will need to rent a loom when you register.


Students should bring: Working rigid heddle loom – be sure all the parts are with it (unless you wish to rent one), tape measure, scissors, note taking supplies.


Rigid heddle looms are a good introductory loom, because of their price and portability. They offer quite a bit in the way of fabric design possibilities, too. While they aren’t the loom to be making rag rugs on, they can handle a nice range of fabrics, towels, table runners, scarves and more. In this class, we will be warping a rigid heddle loom, doing some basic weaving, and introducing you to the many possibilities this loom offers.

Workshop Description: Using a  solid 10.5” wooden frame loom, participants will learn to weave a square with a continuous strand of cotton yarn.  The completed square makes a superb dishcloth.  Participants will learn to weave using a simple crochet hook.  The weaving technique learned in class can be used to complete a single square for a dishcloth.  Multiple squares can be joined for larger projects.  Participants may purchase the loom to take home following the class, for years of weaving pleasure.
