Love working with fibers? Get started weaving and learn to weave. Add rigid heddle weaving to your basic skills and bust through stash. In this beginning weaving class, you'll learn the basics of weaving on a rigid heddle loom.
This class meets twice for 3 hours each session. In the first class, you'll get started planning, warping and weaving. For homework, you'll continue to weave to completion. In the second class, you'll discuss problems, solutions and remove the fabric from the loom. Next you'll tie the ends for fringe. We'll discuss & demonstrate finishing & plan your next project!
