Weaving on a rigid heddle loom is fun and easy. The looms are small and portable and the weaving can range from simple to as complex as you like. This is for those new to weaving as well as 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.

  • This class is  taught by a rotating team of Fiber Arts Studio weavers and fiber artists, including Terry Winer, Dale Walker, and Alison Waller.
