Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving (Feb 2023)

Learn to Weave on a Rigid Heddle Loom

If you have wanted to learn to weave but are not ready to tackle a 4 harness loom, or
if you wish you could weave for yourself, your friends and family, or to sell at FAFS, or
if you have limited space for a loom, or
if you are a spinner with beautiful yarn you want to turn into useful treasures, or
if you’re just curious, come and join us. 

In 2 – 3 hour classes you will set up the loom and weave a scarf, then set up the loom again to refine your skills and learn some useful tricks and techniques. 

Instructions will be given to participants before the course about yarn requirements.
