Double Your Fun: Using Two Rigid Heddles with Deborah Jarchow
Expand your weaving skills and make 2 layers of cloth on the rigid-heddle loom. While weaving, the layers can be connected along one edge to make cloth twice the width of your loom, create tubes, or pockets. During the 2-day workshop you will learn to thread the loom using two heddles and weave a sample.
Learn how to set up and thread for double-heddle weaving. Then weave cloth at double the sett of the heddles used and explore various beautiful patterns that the extra heddle can make possible. Practice creating 2 layers of cloth, each a different color, and learn how to make pockets and tubes in the woven cloth.
This workshop is for students that have some experience with rigid heddle and want to move on to the next level.
