Learn Rigid Heddle Weaving

Intro to Weaving

Sunday, from 12-3

$70

Join Bonnie for an introduction to weaving using the rigid heddle loom. In this class you will learn all of the basic knowledge you need to complete a lovely scarf. The class will meet three Sundays  from 12-3. During the first class you will learn how to dress the loom and begin weaving.  The second class will cover any questions you may have as you continue your project. The final class will address removing the project from the loom and finishing options. Looms are available to rent for $25, which can be applied to the cost of the loom should you get hooked on fun fiber art! Supplies should be purchased before class so we are ready to make the most of our time.
