Join instructor Katherine Buenger to explore the magic of color and weave, using a rigid heddle loom. Weaving 4 napkins and using 2 colors, students will create at least 16 different patterns. Each napkin will have 4 different patterns. Students will learn how to thread a loom with 2 threads in both holes and slots. They will also learn how to tie on using shoe laces, a quick and easy way to save warp. Shoelaces are included in the materials fee.
This is a three-day class. Participants will need to weave at home between each session.
Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Sunday, May 19 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
Your instructor will provide the following materials:
- rigid heddle loom to use in class
- full-color handout booklet
- yarn for three small kitchen towels
- 20 shoe laces
*In order to bring the loom home, students will be required to provide the instructor with credit card information to use as a deposit on the loom.
Students are asked to bring:
- As your class is scheduled over a lunch hour, we highly recommend you bring a lunch or click here to learn about local eating opportunities in the area.
- Students who have not taken Katherine’s beginning RH class may want to purchase her instruction booklet from her directly the first day of class for $10.
This is a just-beyond-beginner class. Students must know how to warp a rigid heddle loom.
Students ages 16 and older are welcome to attend this class. Students between the ages of 16-17 may attend without a parent/guardian in attendance as long as MMFS is provided with written parental permission by email to email@example.com.
