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

To ensure the health, safety, and comfort of our 2021 students, we are requiring workshop participants – as well as teachers – to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to attending their scheduled class(es). (Note that we may ask students to provide proof of vaccination upon arrival.) We understand that this requirement may create challenges for certain individuals, but we appreciate your understanding during this demanding time.
Harrisville Designs remains committed to protecting teachers, students and staff from COVID-19, while still providing a creative, hands-on and inclusive experience. After last year’s hiatus, we’re very much looking forward to the upcoming workshop season – and hope you’ll be able to join us!
