Turn your fabric dreams into woven realities with longtime weaving instructor Jane Patrick! During class, Jane will teach you versatile methods that open up new design possibilities for weaving on a rigid heddle loom. You'll start with skills for stripes, open-weave fabrics and brilliant textures. Then, go beyond the grid to create curves and more, as Jane guides you through working with deflection, pulled threads and differential shrinkage. Want to take the fuss out of working with finer yarns? You'll discover techniques for working with two heddles at a finer sett. Plus, you'll end class with fun double-weaving techniques you can use for more complex, layered fabrics that look different on either side.
Meet expert and author Jane Patrick and start exploring the limitless possibilities of a rigid heddle loom. Class begins with steps for stripes made in both warp and weft. Then, learn to design in the reed for dazzling, unique fabrics.
Spice things up! Jane demonstrates how pick-up stick patterns can offer exciting design possibilities, before sharing two textural finger-control techniques. Follow along for picked-up loops and Ghiordes knots, moving step by step through the weaving guides included for each technique.
Creating spaces in the weave for lacy, open effects is easy on the rigid heddle loom. Jane shows finger-control techniques perfect for a felted scarf, then moves on to Spanish lace and even leno weave. Along the way, she shares fun project ideas and swatches sure to inspire beautiful weaving!
