Krokbragd Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom (in person)



Krokbragd is a beautiful Norwegian weaving technique that opens up a variety of new ways to create weft faced patterns in your weaving. In class we will create bags using the very sturdy fabric that the Krokbragd structure yields, you will also have the option to keep the weaving as a traditional sampler. Krokbragd will not only advance your weft faced weaving skills but you will also be introduced to weaving with string heddle and a heddle rod, a skill that will be handy for any multi pick up stick patterns you might weave in the future.
