Color and Weave for the Rigid Heddle
This workshop highlights some of the amazing visual effects one can achieve using two contrasting colors in plain weave on the rigid heddle loom. Students have the opportunity to weave samples in a round robin format on 10 different pre-warped looms using 3/2 Perle cotton in many different colors. Students will expand their knowledge of using two shuttles at the same time, the treatment of selvedge edges while using two shuttles, and will receive instruction on following color and weave patterns. Students will gain new understanding for warping their looms to create these uniquely striped patterns and for planing their own color and weave projects. All materials included with tuition.
