Weaving Basics - Warping a Loom 1S23

This workshop is designed to give students a thorough and intensive grounding in "direct warping" and hand-weaving on a rigid heddle loom.

Learn to warp and dress a rigid heddle loom through direct warping, type and composition of warp yarns. Calculate yarn requirements for projects, sett analyses, and fabric finishing techniques.

You'll make a warp of your own design, weave if off and remove it from the loom by the end of the class.

No experience is necessary.

This is a 2-day workshop. Hours- 10 AM - 4 PM, both days.

Limit 6 students.


I took Dahlia’s scarf weaving class in the fall and loved it, which led me to sign up for this class, and I’d absolutely come back for another weaving workshop with her!  I registered for this workshop because I wanted to try weaving again and brought my mom to learn how to weave and try a new crafting experience!  Dahlia is a stellar instructor and a fabulous communicator.  She’s incredibly helpful in answering every question, creating a comfortable class environment, and ensuring that everyone feels good about what they’re creating while learning lots along the way!  I loved Dahlia’s attention to detail and ability to make every step understandable and fun!  I really enjoyed the small classroom environment and couldn’t have asked for a better instructor or classroom learning experience!
