Learn to use a second heddle to double your weaving width! We will begin by double warping your loom, learning to place and use pickup sticks, and double weave. These skills can also be used to weave two separate pieces of fabric at once or even tubular textiles.
Prerequisites: Rigid Heddle Weaving Basics, or basic weaving experience
Note: You must have your own loom for this class.
● double-heddle set-up
● two matching heddles (7.5 dpi recommended)
● two pick-up sticks appropriately wide for your warp
● one shuttle
● your own warping set-up (peg, clamps, hook, and sticks/paper towel/other for back warp)
● 200 yards LIGHT COLORED dk-worsted warp yarn
● 50+ yards dk-worsted) weft yarn, non-novelty
Please check early about any supplies you need, as inventory and supply-chain issues can affect availability.
Looms *may* be available to rent for this class. Please contact us to inquire about a rental.
This is a technique class, not a project class. We will not be weaving with a project in mind. In class, we will warp the looms no wider than 12”, and just a few feet long, depending on table size. Students can expect to weave 3-6” in class
