This is a 6-week class.


This class will explore weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom.  Rigid Heddle Looms come in a variety of styles, sizes, and have the advantage of being portable and affordable.  A weaver can bring their own loom to class and take it home to use during the week.  Another advantage is that the Rigid Heddle loom is easier and faster to set up than traditional floor looms.    


The Rigid Heddle part of a loom divides the warp threads into two thread groups   and functions as a two-harness loom, producing an “over one, under one” weave structure.  However, many different types of textiles can be produced on this loom.  Instruction will include planning a project, warping the loom, preparing to weave, and finishing.


The Falmouth Art Center will have a limited number of looms available for this class.  Students are encouraged to bring their own Rigid Heddle Loom.  If you do not have a loom the center has a few looms available for use during the class.  Kindly let the center know if you will need a loom when you register for the class.


If you have questions please contact Christine Anderson (774-487-2134).
