Join your fellow weavers on Zoom for Guild business and show & tell, followed by a talk from one of our favorite weavers and teachers, SCHG member Deborah Jarchow
"Rigid Heddle Trunk Show"
Do you think that a rigid heddle loom is more like a toy than a “real” loom? Let Deborah open your eyes to the endless possibilities offered by these simple looms. She will show samples that allow you to imagine the techniques you can achieve on a rigid heddle loom. See not only scarves and shawls, but bags, vests, jackets and more woven on small (10”) simple looms. But be forewarned, you may get hooked on this method of versatile, portable, easy weaving.
At the end of this presentation, Deborah will show some projects from her book The Weaving Explorer
. Most of the techniques do not require a loom, but allow you to play with your fibers in many fun and interesting ways!
