Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving
Instructor: Samantha Loftin
Rigid Heddle looms are especially accessible looms, with so much potential for creative expression in weaving! Their smaller size, simple operation, and affordability mean that you don't need a huge dedicated space, or large investment of time or money to produce scarves, bags, table linens, and all manner of weavings. In this two-day workshop, students will learn how to warp and weave on a rigid heddle loom, how to remove the weaving from the loom, and how to finish a piece of weaving.
Class price includes two skeins of yarn, to weave a two-color scarf. Many samples of finished woven items will be available to provide inspiration for your scarf, and for potential future projects. Be prepared to weave at home between sessions, and have a finished scarf to take home at the end of class!
You will need to bring:
- Pencil and notebook
- Cloth (flexible) measuring tape and scissors
- Lunch or snacks (complimentary coffee and tea are provided)
No prior weaving experience is required. Students will borrow shop looms during class, and materials for the scarf will be provided. In order to take the loom home with you for the week between classes, we require a credit card number or check to be held while the loom is out for the week.
Class is held at our Lynnwood location. Find directions and parking information on our directions page.
