Always wanted to learn how to weave on, or already own a rigid heddle loom but you’ve been afraid to get started? This class will teach you how to direct warp your loom, how to choose the correct yarn for each heddle, and the basics of how color choices can influence your finished project. Together we will tackle plain “tabby” weave, making pretty selvages, plus discuss working with pickup sticks, finishing your project, and aftercare. You will create a beautiful scarf in the process of learning a variety of weaving techniques. This class will get you started on the exciting road of rigid heddle weaving with confidence!
Required materials: Rigid Heddle Loom with warping tools (sleying hook, warping pegs, clamp if needle), 8 or 10 dent reed, one or two stick shuttles, at least two skeins of smooth, plied yarn in worsted or DK weight (Studio DK or Studio Worsted) for an 8 dent reed or dk/sport (Capital Luxury Sport or Studio DK) for a 10 dent reed. Please choose at least 2 contrasting colors to better see the ways that colors interact in warp and weft.
The Schacht 10" Cricket Loom is available for purchase as part of this class at an exclusive discount of 10%!
