Beginning Rigid Heddle Weaving with Becky McCoy (not currently scheduled).

Rigid heddle weaving is a simple, inexpensive way to create exquisitely textured and colorful garments and textiles.  Over this two day class you'll learn how to weave a scarf using a rigid heddle loom.  $120 tuition includes the price of a rigid heddle loom for you to take home after the class.  Tuition is $70 if you bring your own rigid heddle loom (in good working order).  You'll also need two 3.5 oz./100 g skeins of fingering weight yarn (to be purchased from Dirt Woman Fiber Arts).  Preregistration required.

Learn How to Warp Your Loom with Becky McCoy (not currently scheduled).

In this prequel to the Beginning Weaving class (or refresher) we'll demonstrate how to wind a warp using a warp board, wrap the warp onto a four shaft floor loom, thread a basic 2/2 twill pattern, and tie up and tension the loom.  You'll get hands on experience warping one of the floor looms in our weaving school (or bring your own).  $85 tuition includes all required materials and equipment.  Preregistration required.

Beginning Weaving on a Four Shaft Floor Loom with Becky McCoy (not currently scheduled).

Over this two day class you'll learn how to weave using a four shaft floor loom.  We'll show you how to read patterns, properly tension the loom, and use color and treadling patterns to create test swatches.  Then you'll practice hands-on weaving to develop technique.  The final project will be for you to weave a dish towel in your preferred patterns and colors to take home.  $250 tuition includes floor loom usage, book, and all required materials.  Preregistration required.
