Setting up the loom, called warping, is a pain point for many new weavers. That’s what makes the rigid-heddle loom so spectacular, it is amazingly easy to set up and use even for a beginner. In this brief video I zip through the process of warping a rigid-heddle loom using the direct warping method. For a more thorough approach, check out my book Weaving Made Easy.
