Would you like to make a band such as a belt, guitar strap, camera strap or hatband? Your rigid-heddle loom is certainly capable of doing such weaving. In this class, we’ll design and make a narrow band to learn the technique of warp-faced weaving.
Note! You can definitely do inkle-style or band weaving on a rigid-heddle loom, and that’s what this class is geared for. If you have an inkle loom, you may use it, but you must have at least 25 string heddles made for it and brought to class.
Supplies: Rigid-heddle loom (see note below), 12-dent heddle, threading hook, warping peg, stick shuttle, 2 skeins (or more!) of cotton fingering-weight yarn such as Catona.
Prerequisites: You must know how to warp your loom and know how to achieve a balanced weave.
Time: One 4-hour session.
