Intro to Weaving (Rigid Heddle)

Learn how to weave a simple scarf in this introductory weaving workshop. You will learn the basics of weaving on a rigid heddle loom. In the first class, you will learn how to warp your loom, be introduced to the terminology, and begin to weave the scarf. The second class will be devoted to taking the scarf off the loom and discussing washing and blocking your finished piece. Students who rent their looms from 3 Kittens may keep the loom for up to two weeks following the class in order to make another project or two.

Please note - If you are planning on bringing your own loom to class, you must have an 8-dent heddle as part of your loom. Email to find out more about what a heddle is and how to measure it well before the class start date. We will do our best to help you find the appropriate heddle.
