Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving Workshop with Erin A
Weave a scarf from start to finish in this one-day workshop!
The rigid heddle loom is a very portable, inexpensive, and elegantly simple tool for weaving. The Cricket Loom is a small rigid heddle loom ideal for knitters who want to use leftover yarn, spinners with yarn to spare, and those just inspired to try weaving. Learn how to warp using the direct warping peg method and to weave a scarf using a variety of yarns.
There will be a 1-hour break for lunch. You may bring lunch, or there are places to eat nearby in downtown Hayward.
