This class is of people who are brand new to knitting or looking for a refresher. It will teach you the basic skills needed to make beginner projects.
The class is designed for those who want to learn more about rigid heddle weaving, whether as a beginner or someone who has learned the basics and wants to move forward to explore other possibilities. You will work on your own portable loom using yarns of your choice and learn to plan and create your own project. Which loom is for you? If you are brand new to weaving and do not have a loom, it is recommended that you start with a rigid heddle loom. This loom can be purchased at Michigan Fine Yarns very reasonably. It is a good loom on which to learn the basics and beyond without a huge equipment investment.
