Detailed Description


Expand the possibilities on a rigid heddle loom by using two heddles!  With two heddles of the same dent, you can weave patterns at double the sett of your heddle (16 epi on an 8 dent heddle) as well as two separate layers that can be connected in various ways.  You will learn to set up and thread the loom with two heddles.  During the class, you will weave a sampler that explores patterning of cloth at double the sett of the heddle as well as creating two layers of cloth to make pockets, tubes, or double-width fabric.  You need to be a confident weaver on the rigid heddle loom to take this class.  Please bring a loom with an 8" or wider weaving width that is fully assembled and in good working condition.  It must have two-heddle capability and two rigid heddles of 7.5 or 8 dent.  Materials not included.  By Deborah Jarchow.
