Color and Weave Sampler on the Rigid Heddle Loom with Deborah Jarchow (Sunday, June 4)
WORKSHOP REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Learn to get outstanding color pattern effects using a rigid heddle loom. Make the weaving look like complicated patterns with very little effort. If already familiar with the rigid heddle loom, this workshop will help students master more advanced techniques. For new weavers, the technique is not too difficult to learn. This type of weaving is portable, easy and fun and can add variety to your fiber abilities. This workshop introduces students to color patterns on the rigid heddle loom. They will learn how to control their shuttles for smooth edges. During the day students will warp the loom and weave a sampler scarf that teaches several color patterns. Along the way, there will be discussions about various techniques for rigid heddle weaving and finishing techniques.
