The Rigid Heddle Loom is portable and affordable. It’s a great tool for exploring weaving, using up your stash, and trying something new.

Join Sonoma County's professional artist and instructor, Marta Shannon, for a 2 session ZOOM class to learn the basics of setting up your Rigid Heddle loom and how to weave your very own handwoven scarf.

Day one will focus on design, calculations, carefully warping your loom, and finally weaving.

Day two will focus on taking your scarf off your loom and finishing techniques.

Open to new and experienced weavers. 

Students must have their own or purchase a rigid heddle loom. Yarns should be balled up and ready to use.

 

Materials are NOT included. 

For warp and weft materials you will need at least 2 different colors...
- If your heddle is an 8 dent heddle,160-175 yards of worsted weight yarn for your warp and 120 yards for your weft. 
- If your heddle is a 10 dent heddle, 200-225 yards of a dk / sport weight yarn for warp and 150 yards for weft.

Cotton or wool or blends work best. Check your yarn for strength by gently tugging on a 24" length or so. If it doesn't fall apart it is probably strong enough. Also run your finger nail on it to be sure it holds up to abrasion. 


Please download and test Zoom prior to the class. It is highly recommended to use a laptop, instead of phone or ipad for this. A video link will be sent 5 minutes prior to the class.
