Join us at the WE GATHER studio for Weaving Fundamentals, where you'll get up close and personal with the Rigid Heddle loom and all of the textile possibilities it provides. 

 

In this 4.5-hour workshop, you'll work on one of our studio looms and we'll walk you through the process of dressing the loom and weaving a very fresh wall-hanging. We'll cover all of the fundamentals of weaving with this tool, including basic weave structures and patterns, textural techniques, and necessary troubleshooting skills. 

 

Light refreshments are always served at WE GATHER workshops, along with a generous helping of laughter. 

 

All tools and materials are provided, including yarn and the use of one of our looms. We believe that weaving is for everyone and we want to make this skill as accessible as possible, which is why we don't require you to purchase or have your own loom for this workshop. Should you fall in love with it, though (and we're pretty sure you will), we offer a day-of-workshop discount on our Schacht Rigid Heddle looms so that you can take one home with you and start your own weaving empire.
