Introduction to Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom

Date(s): Tuesday, March 28 and April 4 from 6-9 PM
In this class you will receive 6 hours of instruction over two evenings, while learning the basics of weaving with the rigid heddle loom, including how to set up your loom, plan for future projects, and weave! By the end of the course, you will have created a scarf/shawl using two colours. Don't have your own loom yet? No worries,  we will provide you with a loom that you will be able to take home and work on your project, provided you leave us with a fully refundable deposit. Materials are included, and you will pick your desired colours on the first night of class. No experience required.
