Rigid Heddle Weaving 101

Ages 12+

Course Description: A rigid heddle loom is a great way to start weaving. They are simple to warp than a four harness floor loom, and can produce many types of woven items like scarves, fabric to sew, hand towels, etc. The looms themselves are generally also more inexpensive. Learn rigid heddle warping, (dressing the loom), and weaving. Discuss how to calculate yarn needs for a project, and various pattern ideas. If you are going to bring your own loom, please contact FAVA for a Pre-Class loom conversation appointment with the instructor.
Supplies needed/estimated costs: Students need to bring sharp scissors. Max Students 4. $5 Material Fee

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
