Learn how to weave on a Rigid Heddle Loom with Judy Donovan.

This class is being offered through MALT (Mt. Airy Learning Tree) and is taught at our Guild House. Information can be found HERE. 

Did you ever wonder how cloth is made? Experience the joy of weaving on a rigid heddle loom. Learn basic weaving taught by members of the Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers (PGHW): how to warp the loom and weave a scarf or cowl using different weaving techniques. You will receive instructions prior to class on what type of yarn to bring. No weaving experience necessary! Ages 15 and up. Course fee includes the Guild’s $25 equipment rental fee. This class begins at 1:00 pm. (no need to bring lunch, as noted in the printed catalog)
The price of the class includes the use of one of our rigid heddle looms.  There is a $15 materials fee for the warp and weft yarns.  If we have guild members taking this class who are bringing their own warp and weft, we can waive the $15 materials fee. Please email Judy Donovan if you want to bring your own yarns.

Notes:

$15 materials fee payable to the instructors. Class starts promptly at 1PM.  Location is the PGHW Guild House.
