Rigid Heddle II: Finger Control Techniques and More

Continue your mastery of the rigid heddle loom and unlock all new ways to make pattern on this small but mighty loom. In this class we will continue to explore more in depth pick up stick patterns, a variety of finger control techniques including leno, brooks bouquet, danish medallions, supplemental weft and hem stitching. 

Materials List and HOMEWORK: 

Students will need to arrive on the first day with their looms threaded. 

Longmont Yarn Shoppe has 15 inch looms available to rent to students.

Warp width: 8” 

Ends per inch: 10 

Warp length: 2-2.5 yards (students who know they will want to sample a great deal between classes should do 2.5 yards of warp)

I will provide handouts from the Weavers Idea Book, students who already own it are encouraged to bring it to class.

Other supplies needed:  scissors, tapestry needle, crochet hook, 10 inch or wider Rigid Heddle loom with 10 dent heddle and paper or corrugated cardboard to wind onto the loom (can be owned by the student or rented from the shop). Any remnants of old balls of yarn will be great for the weft and certain samples that require a supplemental weft. 

Yarn: Bamboo Pop 


Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Beginning rigid heddle experience required If students feel that they need extra support threading the loom before class starts they can set up a private session with me to do that.
