Over, under then under, over. The simplest weave structure is easy on a rigid heddle loom. Preparing the loom to weave is quick and the loom does all the “over and undering” for you. We will play with color and texture and introduce some finger manipulated techniques and the option of using more than one heddle.

Beginning Weaving: Floor Loom

Begin your journey into the world of weaving. We will practice warping repeatedly during our time together. You will see how the loom helps you produce many weaves on one threading and you will also begin to understand color interactions. Woven structures and color interaction are the two basic elements of woven design. We will practice the methods of working that are most efficient and ergonomic. You will leave the class with a sampler of structures and four napkins or two towels from your color studies. Instructor: Deanna Lynch
