The Samuel Slater Experience museum will host a three-session rigid heddle loom weaving workshop in Webster on Saturday, February 4, 11 and 18, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Local fiber artist Sharon Geyer will lead the workshop, which is structured for beginners and those who need a refresher course. In the first session students will warp their loom and start weaving a table runner. In the next session, they will plan another project and warp the looms again. In the last session, students will design their own weaving project.
Students will learn all basic weaving skills: how to do a project planning sheet to calculate yarn requirements, how to use a warping peg, how to use the direct warping method, and weaving tips and techniques that will lead to success.
Fee for the course is $150, payable in advance. The fee includes yarn for the first project. For more details and to register, email [email protected] or call 508-461-2955.
