This is a 4-week class.
We have updated our pandemic protocols because of the new health recommendations from the CDC and local health officials guidance on Cape Cod, as well as for the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff and teachers.

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. The Rigid Heddle loom has other advantages, it is easier and faster to set up than traditional looms and is less expensive if a weaver is interested in purchasing one.
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 exploring creating a textile, and finishing.
If you have an interest in learning to weave on a Rigid Heddle loom the Falmouth Art Center has a limited number of looms available for students to borrow. Kindly let the center know if you will need to borrow a loom when you register for the class.
If you have questions, please contact Christine Anderson (774-487-2134).
