Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom: Spring Scarves

Course Overview

Learn to weave on the rigid heddle loom while making a beautiful, lightweight scarf perfect for spring evenings. Using North House rigid heddle looms or their own looms in good working condition, students will learn how to set up the loom, weave the scarf, and finish it with a lovely fringe. No previous weaving experience is required to enjoy this class, and many students have gone on to purchase these relatively inexpensive looms and weave a wide variety of projects at home, including winter scarves, table runners and other woolen goods. For those who are intrigued with weaving but not ready to commit to a large floor loom and big projects, the rigid heddle offers an accessible place to start learning the warp from the weft and other weaving intricacies. The instructor will provide a variety of yarns to choose from; plan to spend $25-$30.
