Weaving Lace on the Rigid Heddle Loom

This class is currently full. To be placed on the waiting list, please call Customer Service at 800-367-9327.

There are many ways to explore weaving on your rigid heddle loom that allow the weaver to create texture, pattern, and open work. This class will focus on guiding you through the different techniques used to create open work fabric. We will explore finger-controlled weaving using Leno, Brook's Bouquet, Medallion, and Spanish lace techniques The hand-manipulated processes are great for adding finishing touches to all sorts of woven items. They can be applied to home decor projects such as curtains, table runners, and placements. Or, if garments are your interest, you can create a lovely summer shawl for yourself. Students will need to come prepared with a dressed loom.
