The rigid heddle loom provides an excellent introduction to weaving. Portable and versatile, this little loom can be used to make items for the home and wardrobe. In this class you will learn how to read weaving patterns written for the rigid heddle, calculate how much yarn is needed, dress the loom, and weave. We will make a simple fall table runner that can be embellished at home with fall leaves and simple embroidery using instructions provided.

Supplies to Bring: Scissors. A rigid heddle loom is required. If you do not own one, the teacher has some for use -- please let us know at time of registration if you need to use one of ours. If you are providing your own loom, you must have a 7.5 or 8 dent heddle. The supply fee includes yarn, a guide to warping, and a small kit that includes all the little extras you need to weave in class. A limited number of looms are available for rent from the teacher for use in class.
