Introduction to Rigid Heddle Weaving: Oct

If you have ever wondered if weaving is fun or just wondered what it is all about, this is the class for you! No experience required! Love it or leave it!

Nancy Wilson from the Lost Art Fiber Studio will be joining us throughout the year for an introduction and continuation of her weaving technique workshop.

She will be using a Schacht Cricket Loom to learn the basics of Rigid Heddle weaving. In this class you will learn the parts of the loom, how to set up your loom, and how to weave. At the end of the class, you will end up with a handwoven scarf, towel or cowl depending on the month.

This month’s focus is on learning to use a rigid heddle loom using sock yarn for a scarf or table runner approximately 9″ wide x 50″- 60″ long. You can use a self-striping, variegated or a FairyYarnmother Dyed Yarn Blank to make a very unique and exciting woven item. If you use a sock yarn which is wool and nylon you will make something that will be washable – a great gift for someone that doesn’t always remember the “handwash wool” instructions.
