Color and Weave Sampler Scarf with Deborah Jarchow

Class Level: Advanced Beginner - Comfortable warping your loom.
Description: Learn to get outstanding color pattern effects using a rigid heddle loom. Make your weaving look like complicated patterns with very little effort. If you are already familiar with the rigid heddle loom, this class will help you master more advanced techniques. If you are a newer weaver, the technique is not too difficult to learn. This type of weaving is portable, easy and fun and can add variety to your fiber abilities. This workshop introduces students to color patterns on the rigid heddle loom. They will learn how to control their shuttles for smooth edges. During the day we will weave a sampler scarf that teaches several color patterns. Along the way, we’ll discuss various techniques for rigid heddle weaving and finishing techniques.
Homework: Print handout prior to class. Warp the loom according to the instructions through step 21 in the handout.
Supplies to bring: 250 yards each of worsted weight in 2 contrasting solid colors (think black and white). This includes the yarn you are warping with. Yarn should be smooth, at least 2 ply, strong and not hairy. Warped rigid heddle loom, 2 shuttles and bobbins (if using boat shuttles), tape measure, scissors, tapestry needle, cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, 1 piece of stiff paper that is at least 11” long and 1” wide.
