Rigid Heddle Loom Weaving Workshop
Join us to tackle the art of weaving on a rigid heddle loom! In this workshop, we'll focus on basics skills from planning out projects to setting up the loom. Once the loom is dressed, we will practice plain weave and variations like stripes and shapes. By the end of this 2-part workshop, students will walk away with a small woven sample of their new skills, or be well on their way to creating a woven scarf of their own!
This is a 2-part workshop being held on Tuesday April 3 and Tuesday April 10, 6:30-9:30. Students must be available to attend both sessions.
