Weaving has a rich history, and what better way to explore it than to try it for yourself? This season’s workshops follow the thread from backstrap, box or tape looms, to today’s rigid heddle looms. These popular, low-cost looms are a satisfying introduction to weaving as well as a fun new frontier for experienced textile artists. Yarn choice, winding and warping, and basic weave structures are covered in this three-hour session; private lessons available for those who wish to continue to learn.
Bring your own rigid heddle loom or borrow one of ours!
