Rigid Heddle Study Group 2022
The intention of this group is to encourage intentional and deliberate practice on the rigid heddle loom, but paced to accommodate our respective life schedules. Therefore we have planned for the study group to span over six months, working on three projects. Each project will take approximately 2 months from warp, weave and finish. You are welcomed to work on more projects, but that would not be our expectation.
As this is a study group, the choice of weave structure, techniques and projects will be chosen by consensus amongst members of the group. To make this group as inclusive as possible, we will encourage the group to pick projects that do not require the purchase of additional tools and accessories beyond the yarns that are required for the project. We will certainly be here to suggest possible hacks or work-arounds for techniques that require additional tools (e.g. double-heddle weaving).
This study group will meet on Sunday mornings, between 10 am to 12 noon.

9 Jan - (Group Check-in, In-Person or Virtual)
