Create a woven scarf on a rigid heddle loom! In this two-session workshop, learn to warp a loom, wind a shuttle, hem stitch, weave and discuss troubleshooting on the first day. During the second session learn several fringe options and how to wet finish. Discuss how to plan for future projects on the loom including determining the quantity of warp and weft yarns and which yarns work best.
This is a two-day class. Participants will need to weave at home between each session.
