INTERMEDIATE RIGID HEDDLE CLASSES:
The weaving classes listed below are designed for those who have done some weaving before or have taken the Beginning Rigid Heddle class.
PLEASE NOTE: Several intermediate rigid heddle weaving classes offer a loom rental, but others require that you bring your own loom. Please read carefully to see if a class requires you to bring your own loom and let us know at the time of enrollment what size loom you are bringing so that we can accomodate enough space in our classroom.
