In this two-day workshop you will review skills and weaving terminology learned in the beginning rigid heddle class, practice basic weaving skills and complete a 13″ x 26″ table runner. You will also learn how to create patterns using a pick-up stick.
We will be using the book, Hands-On Rigid Heddle Weaving by Betty Linn Davenport. This is an invaluable resource for all rigid heddle weavers. Materials and the Betty Davenport book are included in the cost of the class.
We will provide the use of a loom. (You may bring your own loom with a 10-dent reed, two to four 16-20″ stick shuttles, and one 16-20″ pick-up stick. If you are bringing your own loom, please let us know when you sign up for the class.) We also have looms for sale if you wish to purchase your own. If you’d like to purchase your own loom, please call us at (254) 300-2436 at least a week before the class. (You are eligible for a 10% discount on purchases made at the time of class.)
This class is from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
