Next Steps in Rigid Heddle Weaving
Specialty Class
Saturday, October 12, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

You have a Rigid Heddle Loom and you’ve learned the basics of weaving. Now what?

Weaving Instructor Sylvia Emard will help you answer that question with this Specialty Class for weavers. She’ll show you how to take your weaving to the next level with a variety of special techniques. You’ll be truly amazed at all the things you can do on your Rigid Heddle loom!

In this one-day Specialty Class, Sylvia will teach you some great new tricks and guide you in making your own “Woven Sampler” to learn several new weave structures. These new techniques will help you “up your game” on your Rigid Heddle loom – and you will leave with a great sampler to take home for future reference. This Class is guaranteed to add more fun and inspiration to your Rigid Heddle weaving, as well as some “Wow” to your finished projects.
