Learn to use this simple two shaft loom.  It is portable, practical, versatile, and easy to use.  Learn a rigid heddle can be used to create scarves, bags, place mats, table runners, a variety of towels, garment fabric and wall hangings just to name a few.  We will make a wool sampler to learn easy warping methods and several weaving techniques to get you started.  Susan will discuss working with different materials, managing selvages (useful for all weaving) and finishing techniques.
