Learning saori weaving and rigid heddle loom weaving
Ah the dilemma of wanting to learn to weave on a rigid heddle loom but also intrigued with Saori weaving. So I did a class using both types of looms. My new student confessed that she is quite rigid and not prone towards improvising.
I think she did fantastic improvising!
On to learning how to warp the Glimakra Emilia rigid heddle loom for weaving a scarf.
winding the warp out on the deck.
beamed on she is threading the heddle holes.
warpd tied on and packed with sticks to leave room for the fringe . She is Ready to weave
Check back in a couple of weeks and see how Jennifer's scarf turns out as she is taking the ridgid heddle loom home to continue to weave on her scarf but ssh I think it is a gift for her mum..
