Learn basic, efficient weaving methods on the rigid heddle loom. Start with plans: how to estimate warp and weft yarn needs for everyone'sfirst RH project, a scarf. Then do the first half: direct warping, tying on, spreading the warp evenly with the header.Then the second half: filling shuttles, throwing weft for smooth selvedges, hemming, handling shuttle changes and (oops!) warp breaks gracefully, and cutting your work off the loom. And, last but definitely not least: finishing; how to fringe and full your first project.
This class will have 5 sessions: 1. planning & tools 2. direct warping 3. weaving, starting out 4. weaving, continues 5. finishing
Required for first class: rigid heddle loom. Planning and tools required will be discussed further in the first class session.
