Clasped Weft on a Rigid Heddle Loom - Mar. 30 & Apr. 6 (need to rent a loom)
Rigid heddle weaving is easy, relatively inexpensive, and a portable method for learning the craft of weaving. Clasped weft weaving involves interlocking two threads to produce two colors or textures in one row of weaving. It enables the designer to express their creativity in an easy to learn format.
In this class, students will learn how to direct warp a loom, weave a decorative pillow cover using the clasped weft method, and finish a pillow. They will work on the loom during class with the guidance of the instructor and continue weaving at home between classes. While some weaving experience is preferred for this class, absolute beginners are welcome.
Weave on your own rigid heddle loom or rent one for $20 (rental fee due on the first day of class). There are four Schacht Cricket looms available for rent.
