I’m offering a rigid heddle weaving class Feb. 21-22, 2009. I’ll be teaching: set up of a single heddle rigid heddle loom, weaving on the rigid heddle, and several design techniques to add some pizazz to your work. On Sunday afternoon, we will continue our weaving, and learn to remove your work from the loom, and students will learn some “finishing” techniques.
Looms are provided for this class. We use a variety of looms, so students can see the benefits and shortcomings of a variety of looms. This helps students to determine which rigid heddle loom might be the best fit for themselves.
Class meets from 10-4 on Saturday, and from 1-5 on Sunday. Out-of-town students will find lodging is very close to the studio, with a Springhill Suites just about a quarter mile from the studio (walking distance), a Fairfield Inn is just a bit farther away, as is Holiday Inn Express.. There is a women only gym within walking distanct, as well as a wonderful grocery, a variety of restaurants including: an express asian, Subway, and a Cracker Barrel restaurant. If you want to run out and get more yarn, or if I don’t have what you need, there is a Michaels craft store within a half mile. So you can come, enjoy the weekend, and time out with other ‘yarnies’ without doing without a thing. Class is $125 for the weekend and includes use of a loom, yarn, and instruction.
I hope you will join us!
