This workshop focuses on how to warp a Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom using the warping peg

will be used to weave and finish the participant’s length of woven fabric. Depending on how
diligently the participant weaves they may be able to create a length long enough for a scarf.
Towards the end of the class participants will learn to remove the fabric from the loom and
finish it out.
Looms will be provided. You will have the opportunity to purchase a loom and/or other
weaving accessories at the end of class.
