Weaving

Three-hour class | Adults and youth age 11 and up
Class size: 4 in the Hale House
Cost: $72 for members, $82 for non-members

Weaving has a rich history, and what better way to explore it than to try it for yourself? This season’s workshops follow the thread from backstrap, box or tape looms, to today’s rigid heddle looms. These popular, low-cost looms are a satisfying introduction to weaving as well as a fun new frontier for experienced textile artists. Yarn choice, winding and warping, and basic weave structures are covered in this three-hour session; private lessons available for those who wish to continue to learn.
Bring your own rigid heddle loom, or borrow one of ours (reservation required).
