Rigid Heddle Loom Basics Workshop

by Handknit




Saturday July 21st, 12-5pm

$100 including yarn materials


This class will walk you through the basics of using your rigid heddle loom and is designed for someone who has woven but needs a bit more help finessing their textiles. During the class we’ll direct warp a small sample using the colour and weave technique, and you’ll learn how to read a weaving draft, calculate your warp and weft needs, hemstitch, some basic lace, tips on how to achieve a more regular, evenly woven textile, and suggestions for finishing. At the end of the class, you’ll have small sample to take home.


You'll be supplied with 2 skeins of Cascade 220 in contrasting colours (1 light, 1 dark) of your choice.

There is only 1 space available for a NON-LOOM OWNER to use our shop loom during the workshop. The remaining spaces are for owners of Ashford Rigid Heddle Looms: please choose option LOOM OWNER if you have your own loom.
