Intro to Rigid Heddle Weaving
Weaving is the new knitting! Not really, of course, but it is a lot of fun and exciting to do. And weaving on a rigid heddle loom is a great way to get your toes wet. Incredibly versatile, yet simple to use, these looms are ideal for space challenged NYC apartments!
In this 5-hour, two part class you will learn all the basics from setting up the loom and getting ready to weave through to different finishing techniques to complete your project. Students will choose one of the two plaid scarf projects pictured as their project for the class.
Class is 3 hours the first week, and 2 hours the second session. Students should expect to spend 3-6 hours working at home on their project in preparation for the second class.
2 or 3 colors of Brown Sheep Nature Spun or Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok or another worsted weight smooth wool yarn. All yarn must be wound prior to the start of class.
1 empty paper towel roll (optional)
Large Ikea bag, or other tote bag for taking loom home with you.
LOOM RENTAL FEE:
There is a $30 loom rental fee which will be applied to the purchase of a loom if it is purchased during the class. You must provide a credit card number that will be charged for the full cost of the loom in the event that the loom is not returned on time or is damaged. You can pay your rental fee here or in the shop when you purchase yarn supplies.
All classes must meet a minimum enrollment (usually 2-3 students) to run. In the event a class does not meet minimum enrollment, you will be notified at least 48 hours in advance and given a full refund, or the opportunity to reschedule.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your registration, please provide at least 24 hours advance notice before the start of your first class for store credit for group classes and 48 hours for private and semi-private classes. Cancellations made with less than notice are non-refundable.
We cannot offer make-up sessions or credit for missed group classes. Out of respect for your instructor and classmates, we kindly ask that you be on time.
