Bring mindful intention and a sense of adventure to your loom as you explore all the possibilities of expressive weaving on a rigid heddle loom.

INDIRECT WARPING WITH SPACING VARIATIONS- Learn how to indirect warp your Rigid Heddle loom using spacing variations to add interest and pattern
CREATIVE WEAVING WITHIN PLAIN WEAVE STRUCTURE- Learn creative and textural weft techniques to take your plain weave to the next level.  Techniques span across the spectrum of weaving.  Inlay, shapes, holes, ruffles… possibilities are endless  Topics can be led by the desire of the student. Maybe you have seen something on line or socials you want to try? Let’s work it out.
WEAVING WITH UNSPUN FIBER- Explore all the possibilities with weaving with unspun fiber.  Techniques include how secure locks in your weaving so they don’t fall out,  how to use roving/top as a textural element, and  how to use rolags as yarn.

3D WEAVING EXPLORATIONS- See the possibilities of weaving 3 dimensional structure on your 2 dimensional loom. With clever warp and weft pattern, watch your cloth pop into dimension when you take it off the loom. 
SEWING HANDWOVEN CLOTH- Shake the fear of cutting your cloth and take your weaving to the next level by learning how to sew your handwoven cloth. Classes can be tailored to the experience of the student. Start with pillows, then move to garments!
