Rigid Heddle looms are simple looms, but can be very versatile.  Portable, easy to warp, available in multiple widths and reed sizes, they are a great way to be introduced to the awesome world of weaving AND to make a dent in your yarn stash.

This workshop will go over the basics of learning to weave on a rigid heddle loom.  You will learn weaving terms, how to calculate a warp and plan a project, how to warp the rigid heddle loom using the direct warping method, the proper way to wind a stick shuttle, and basic finishing for scarves.

Participants will prepare their loom for weaving a scarf and finish the project on their own.
