RIGID HEDDLE WALK-IN & WEAVELearn how to weave on a Rigid Heddle loom and create and scarf.
SCHEDULE:5/2 & 5/3 | 6:30-9PM
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 course does not cover warping, just weaving.
