Announcing an exciting new series of half-day classes for the rigid heddle weaver! At the request of our students, we are introducing a new mini-series for beginning rigid heddle weavers. To take these classes, all you need is the experience gained in RH100 (introductory class). This series of half-day classes will assist you to develop the skills introduced in the rigid heddle introductory class and will teach you a variety of skills and patterns that you will use in weaving attractive scarves – perfect for the fall and Christmas season. The classes will be on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00.

Cost for each class will be $50 for tuition plus materials fee. You will bring your own loom so that you can finish your projects at home. (These projects require different sized reeds. You will need to check each class description to see what size reed you will need. If you do not have the particular sized reed for the project, you can purchase at the time of class but please let us know ahead of time that you wish to do so.) If you do not own a loom, then you can use one of ours and you will take home whatever you have completed by the end of class but you may not finish the full-length scarf. If you wish to use one of our looms, please let us know when you sign up for the class. For full description of these new classes, send us your email address and we will email information to you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call School of Fiber Crafts 254-754-9680 and we can mail you the information. Better still, come by and see us and we will give you the details! We look forward to seeing you soon.
