Learn to Weave on a Rigid Heddle Loom with Robin Lynde
November 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$25
In this 1.5-hour demo and Q&A session, Robin Lynde of Meridian Jacobs (fibershed.org/producers/meridian-jacobs/) will show how to weave a neck warmer (a short scarf with a slit) on a take-anywhere rigid heddle loom, with the easiest warping method you’ll ever use! Rigid heddle looms are simple to warp, inexpensive, and very portable. This is a great project for the person who wants to learn about weaving, as well as a fun one for experienced weavers. Your whole project can easily be completed in a day. A great project to do on-the-go, this loom can even go camping with you! NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.
Robin will be using a Cricket Loom by Schacht (meridianjacobs.com/tools-supplies/schacht-cricket-loom) and Jacob 2-ply sport yarn from her farm in Vacaville, CA (fibershedmarketplace.com/merchants/meridian-jacobs/m/Mjg%3D).
Two looms are available to rent for this class. Loom must be picked up and returned to the farm in Vacaville. Rental fee: $25 for two weeks. Rental fee will be applied to purchase if student would like to purchase a loom by the end of the year.
After you register, you will be sent more details about equipment along with weaving instructions. You can watch the class and ask questions during the webinar, then do your weaving afterward, referring to the video. Robin will also be available for consultations.
Webinar ends at approximately 12:30 pm.

This webinar is part of a series that will be streaming live via Zoom from the Fibershed Learning Center, a multi-use space to demonstrate and provide hands-on connections to natural fiber and dye systems. The Learning Center will open later this year in Point Reyes Station, California, on the traditional and ancestral territory of the Coast Miwok and within the historic Black Mountain Ranch property.
Proceeds from each event support the class instructor and contribute to Fibershed for educational programming. A portion of the proceeds from each virtual event will also be shared with a local and mission-aligned non-profit organization, selected by the instructor. Currently scheduled online events are listed on our Learning Center page (fibershed.org/programs/education/learningcenter).
A video of the webinar will be made available to webinar registrants within approximately two weeks of the event.
