Welcome to the Yarnworker School! This is your space for rigid heddle weaving know-how. As your instructor, I’d like to invite you to join in as it suits your needs, from foundational classes that build on each other as you grow your skills, to fun and challenging weave-alongs.
Over the next year, I'll be rolling out a series of classes to build your foundational skills. The first class assumes you know nothing about weaving on a rigid heddle loom and walks you through all the foundational information you need from loom mechanics, terminology, selecting yarns, setting up the loom, reading a weaving pattern, weaving with confidence, and finishing strong.
Future classes will build on this foundation and cover topics such as warping and weaving for stripes, checks, and color-and-weave; the three faces of weave—warp faced, weft-faced, and balanced; using a pick-up stick; and designing your own projects.
If you already have a few foundational skills, I invite you to the School's Weave-Alongs. To participate in a weave-along, I assume you know the basics. These weave-alongs are FREE and open to anyone who wants to participate because of the generous support of the Yarnworker Patreon Community. Become a patron, and you get behind-the-scenes information, discounts on classes and Yarnworker publications, cool rewards, an invitation to join a private Facebook Group, and my undying thanks!
