Class, No Prerequisite

Fiber Arts Studio



Weaving on a rigid heddle loom is fun and easy. The looms are small and portable and your weaving can be as simple or as complex as you like. This class is for those new to weaving or established weavers looking for a way to make quick projects.

You'll learn how to direct warp the loom, do simple balanced weaving, identify and fix simple mistakes, and remove the finished project from the loom.

Rigid heddle looms are perfect for weaving with hand-knitting yarns. You'll choose from a variety of yarns provided by BARN to make a scarf you'll finish by the end of class and take home.


  • Skill Level: Beginners to advanced weavers
  • Bring a bag lunch. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave on the lower level.


A $25 materials fee, included in the cost of the class, covers all materials needed.
