About This Event

(This is a 2-day class)

In this “Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving” class you will learn the parts of a rigid heddle loom and the importance each part plays in your weaving.  You will learn how to warp a loom and weave a scarf. You will also learn hemstitching that holds woven yarn in place after the scarf is removed from the loom. 

We will discuss different weave structures and how color can really impact your woven items. Your first woven project will be a houndstooth scarf made out of Universal Yarns Wool Pop, a wool/bamboo/nylon yarn. You will need two contrasting (one light & one dark) colors. A traditional houndstooth pattern is made from very light grey or off white and a charcoal grey or black color palette. However, this is your scarf so your color choice will be perfect.  Just make sure to pick light and dark solid colors.


  • Yarn
    • Universal Wool Pop, 2 colors, 1 skein each
  • Looms are available for use during the class (Please let us know if you will require use of a loom during class, or if you have your own & what type of loom it is)
