Weaving is fun! Learn the principles of handweaving on the rigid heddle loom. Rigid heddle looms are portable, affordable, quiet, lightweight, and easy to store. These looms operate under light tension and have minimal yarn waste, making them very friendly for weaving with handspun and other luxury yarns. We will explore the basic principles of weaving and cover sett analysis, weaving terminology and calculations, direct warping, deciphering a weaving draft, plain weave, hemstitching, and finishing wool fabric. After weaving an introductory sample, students will make a warm winter scarf using one of Kate’s patterns.
Skills Level: Beginner with basic math knowledge

We were very disappointed to have to cancel all of our workshops in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are hopeful that in 2021 we can begin the road back to our normal series. To that end this year, we are offering fewer work- shops, with fewer students per workshop and limiting the number of people who can stay in our Boarding House. We will be strictly observing all Covid protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of our teachers and staff. We don’t know at this point if masks will still be required, but if they are, we will have plenty of masks available. There will also be lots of hand sanitizer and disinfec- tant sprays. We are hopeful that our classes will take place, and we look forward to seeing you. Stay safe!
