I offer a range of different classes, all using rigid heddle looms. These are table top looms, operated by just using the hands, and can be used to create an amazing variety of textures and patterns.
Classes are at scheduled times, posted below and on Facebook, and by appointment. If you don't see a time you can make, please do contact me to arrange a class for yourself or a small group!
What's Weaving? This is a fun introduction to rigid heddle weaving which will quickly get you started on the loom and weaving away! After a short introduction to the loom and the basic principles of weaving, you will be ready to sit down at a pre-warped* loom, so all you have to do is pick out your weft* yarns from the selection of fun fibers provided. You will be able to create a mug rug or small table mat.
2 - 4 people, 2.5 hours $35 per person, materials and use of loom included.
(*The warp is the threads held under tension from front to back on the loom, the weft is what you place across the warp, using the shuttle wound with yarn, as shown in the image above.)
Private lessons Individual lessons are available by appointment. Please get in touch and we can discuss what you would like to work on, I'll be happy to hear from you! $20 per hour
