Ready, Set, Weave: Make a Wool Scarf
Learn the basics of the rigid heddle frame loom and create a cozy scarf. Students will learn the direct warping technique, a quick process that gets you weaving in a short time. Bring a rigid heddle frame loom in good working condition and an 8 or 10 dent reed, if you have them. If not, rigid heddle frame looms are available upon request to use during the workshop. When registering, please indicate if you need to borrow a loom. This class, taught by Carol Johnson of the Weavers Guild of Minnesota, is a great introduction to weaving, ideal for students who want to find out if weaving is for them.
Materials: a $5 handout fee will be collected in class; yarns available at the Weavers Guild of Minnesota shop. Advance registration is required by Wednesday, Sept. 12, and space is limited.
