Introduction to Rigid Heddle Flip Loom Weaving, 1-Day sec 1
This is Section One. See Section Two HERE. Choose only one section.
In this introductory class we will explore the fundamentals of how to set up and use a Rigid Heddle Flip Loom. We will learn the basics of the plain weave structure by creating a scarf of either one color or multi colors depending on your yarn choice. The Rigid Heddle Flip Loom can accommodate a warp that is 6 yards in length, and up to 30” in width, which makes it an ideal introductory loom for learning many different weaving techniques.
