RIGID HEDDLE WALK-IN & WEAVELearn how to weave on a Rigid Heddle loom and create and scarf.
SCHEDULE:12/5 & 12/6 | 6:30-9:30PM
The Rigid Heddle loom is the perfect balance of simplicity and functionality. In this course, you will arrive at an already warped Rigid Heddle loom and jump right into the fun part ... the weaving! Students will learn project planning, weaving, and finishing all while making a fun handwoven scarf in the colors and textures of your choosing. This would be a great way to make a special handwoven December holiday gift! This course does not cover warping, just weaving.

Cancelation + Make-up Policy
We absolutely understand that things come up and you may need to cancel your registration. We've done our best to create a cancellation policy that honors how fickle life can be alongside our financial commitment to our staff and teaching artists. First, you may always transfer your registration to another student (just let us know in advance!). If you need to cancel your registration we are happy to offer a 50% store credit refund for cancellations made two weeks in advance of your workshop date. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for cancellations made less than two weeks in advance. We are also unable to offer make-ups or exchanges for missed workshops.
Students get a one-time 10% student discount that is active at the first workshop session and expires two weeks following the final workshop session. When you arrive at your workshop there will be a QR code to scan and provide feedback on your workshop experience. After the short feedback survey the discount code will appear.
