Texture is an easy and fun technique to learn and execute on the rigid heddle loom!  Using a simple pick up stick and your fingertips, you can easily add sections of texture to your woven projects for a pop of visual interest or create a beautiful all-over textured fabric. 

Join us as Lois Wagner, owner and teacher at Fiber Fun Studio, leads us in creating a sampler that will introduce rigid heddle weavers the how-to behind Leno lace, Brooks Bouquet, Danish medallions, Spanish lace, in lay, and pinwheels.

Required Equipment & Materials:
Rigid Heddle Loom with 7.5 or 8 dpi heddle – warped on your own before class
