Learn to use the Rigid Heddle Loom and Make a Use-Up-Your-Stash Scarf
If you are looking for ways to use up your leftover balls of yarn, this method of weaving is easy, fun, and creative. In this class you will learn to set up a small rigid heddle loom and weave a gorgeous scarf. Discover ways to combine different colors, textures, and fibers in your warp (top-to-bottom vertical threads) as you make your unique and beautiful scarf. Learn why some yarns work together and others might not. This exciting way to make use of fancy and fun yarns is quick, easy, and portable.
Level of Experience: Beginner
Materials to Bring to the workshop: About 500 yards sock to worsted weight yarn from your stash that is at least 2-ply (no singles), smooth, non-hairy, strong, and in colors that will work together. This should include at least 200 yards of one solid color for the weft (side to side threads) that blends with the other colors. Scissors, tapestry needle, cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, two brown paper grocery bags.
Deborah will provide each person with a rigid heddle loom for use at no cost and all the accessories you will need to use in class. If interested in purchasing a loom and supplies to take home, Deborah will bring an assortment of looms and kits in various sizes and manufactures.
Materials fee: None.
Cost: $60 for members ($85 for non-members which includes Guild membership through 2019) Note – this is an all day class. This class is a great deal since many weaving classes charge extra to borrow looms or require students to bring their own.
