    Are you ready to go beyond plain weave on your rigid heddle loom? In this class we will open a whole new world of weaving fun as we explore using pick-up sticks to create patterns and textures. We will learn the basics of using a pick-up stick to create additional sheds and we will make a sampler of many different weaves.
