Rigid Heddle Weaving | Warp + Weave WHEN: Saturday, August 6, 2022 TIME: 10-5 pm (with 1-hour lunch break) LOCATION: San Diego Craft Collective, San Diego, CA SAVE YOUR SPOT HERE: --> https://sandiegocraft.org/product/rigid-heddle-warp-weave/ <-- Learn the ancient fiber craft of weaving your own fabric using a sustainably harvested wooden Rigid Heddle Loom and soft natural fibers. The mindful pace and beauty of watching your own fabric grow, row by row, is grounding, fascinating and very welcoming of your own creative eye and inspiration. At this hands-on workshop you’ll learn everything you need to know to warp and weave on your own. This class is perfect for anyone who’s been curious about weaving beyond a lap loom and wants to learn the warping and weaving processes. We’ll dive into fiber & fabric and demystify the process of getting set up (otherwise known as warping a loom), weaving, and finally, finishing and removing a woven fiber good from the loom! And, you’ll go home with handwoven fabric in-hand. Length of the final piece will depend on the individual’s own pace. In this workshop you’ll learn: * How a Rigid Heddle Loom works; * How to Plan a Textile (e.g. sett, basic pattern & choosing fiber, etc.) * How to Warp a Rigid Heddle; * How to Weave; * How to Remove your Woven; * And, How to Finish a freshly Handwoven Textile.

I will have a variety of Ashford looms (Sample It and Knitters Looms) present for purchase in class. Please contact me at ANINIdesigns@gmail.com if you have any questions or specific looms you’re interested in beforehand. PERFECT FOR :: A DIY-Learning Opportunity, Friend’s-Fun-Date, Creative and Eco Living Experience! NOTE: I also offer a “Learn to Weave on Rigid Heddle Looms” Workshop which focuses specifically on Weaving on pre-warped looms.
