We offer a variety of weaving classes for the potential new weaver including rigid heddle weaving and floor loom weaving, both group classes and private instruction. For all of our classes, we provide the equipment and tools needed so the student does not need to purchase a loom prior to taking a class.
Rigid Heddle Loom Classes
Weave a Scarf in a Day! This is our beginning rigid heddle loom class. Students arrive between 10:00 and 10:15 and choose their yarn. Each student then warps a loom that we provide. We take a 30-minute lunch break (bring your lunch!), and weave all afternoon. Generally students finish weaving by 4:00 (sometimes earlier) and leave with a scarf that they have woven themselves! During the afternoon of weaving, students learn how to wind a shuttle, pass the shuttle through the warp, handle the shuttle in such a way that they have nice selvedge edges, and to beat in a manner that will create a nicely draping scarf. This is a great class for a person who thinks they might be interested in weaving or a person who hasn't woven in a while and needs a refresher. Cost: $95, $20 of which is applied to the cost of the yarn you select.
