BEGINNING RIGID HEDDLE WEAVING
If you like color and texture, then weave with the simple rigid heddle loom, which is quick, popular, and easy. You will learn a fast way to thread the loom and then weave a scarf. If you need a loom, we will have one for you to use and, if you buy one during class, youll get a 10% discount on it. If you already own a loom, be sure it is complete, assembled, and in working condition with an 8- or 7.5-dent heddle. By MaryMargaret Eisfelder.

BASIC BEGINNING WEAVING
In this introductory class to harness weaving, you will make a simple 6 x 50 scarf using twill, a simple threading pattern. This is a good review class for previous weavers or one for those wanting a good introduction to weaving. You will learn to read a draft, measure a warp, thread a loom, and weave off a project. No experience needed. We use a heavier yarn to make the threading and weaving progress more quickly. Looms and tools are provided during class. Yarns will be purchased on the first day of class.
