Want a quick project to weave on your rigid heddle loom? Want a project designed to use up left over yarn? Then this is a perfect project for you! Clasped weft is a tapestry technique that emphasizes the weft. This weaving technique utilizes two yarns that "meet and separate" by coming from each end of the warp to interlock at a chosen point in the warp. It is great for creating block, stepped and zigzag patterns. We will use this technique to create a piece of cloth to cover a pillow form.
Participants must be comfortable warping the rigid heddle loom independently.
