Clasped Weft Rigid Heddle Weaving
This class is currently full. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-367-9327 to be put on the wait list.
Clasped weft is a tapestry technique that emphasizes the weft. This weaving technique utilizes two yarns that "meet and separate" by coming from both ends of the warp to interlock at a chosen point in the fabric. It is great for creating block, stepped, zigzag, and freeform patterns to be used for wall hangings, pillow covers, placemats, and small rugs. In this class, students will learn design, weaving, and finishing techniques to create a beautiful finished piece.
