PART I: Getting to Know Your Rigid Heddle Loom | March 30, 10am – 2pm

Ever been curious about the art of weaving? Do you have a loom that’s gathering dust or hasn’t even been taken out of its package? It’s time for you to get acquainted with that loom! Judy Barth, a local weaver, will go over basic set-up, warping your loom and some basic concepts on weaving including choosing the right yarns for the right sett. You will be contacted before the class to make sure you have all the correct supplies.

***A very limited number of practice looms will be available on a first-come first-served basis. For those taking BOTH Parts: looms will not be available to take home in-between classes. If you would like to use a Hallockville practice loom you MUST call 631.298.5292 to register for the class.

PART II: Weaving on Your Rigid Heddle Loom | April 6, 10am to 2pm

Now that you’ve learned to set-up and properly warp your loom it’s time to weave! Join us for a class that will explore pattern designs, pick-up-sticks and skills to enhance your weaving technique. ***You do not need to take Part I: Getting to Know Your Rigid Heddle Loom to take this class BUT you must come to class with a fully warped loom.
