Introduction to Weaving - Stripes!
Learn the basics of weaving with a Rigid Heddle Loom. Students will learn how to plan their own project, warp a loom, weave their project while troubleshooting common issues and explore different finishing techniques. With a cotton warp, plain weave will be explored through colour, weave patterns and clasped wefts to create stripes and texture.
A Rigid Heddle Loom being compact and inexpensive, is a very user friendly and accessible gateway into the wonderful world of weaving. Students who wish to purchase Rigid Heddle Looms may do so at a discount. Yay!
