DVD – WEAVING ON A RIGID HEDDLE LOOM: How to Get Set Up In a Hurry and Weave Just About Anything You Can Think Of, Jane Patrick.
Explore the endless possibilities of the rigid heddle loom as Jane Patrick shows you how to take your loom to its limits! The rigid heddle loom—a simple device with a hard-sounding name—is remarkably versatile and easy to use. It’s great for beginners, but equally great for seasoned weavers who can explore its endless potential while never getting bored. If you’re accustomed to thinking of the rigid heddle loom as a “placemat” loom, be prepared. In this 2-disc set, you’ll see how to use it for all kinds of fabrics—from sturdy little rugs to sheer shawls, from simple plain weaves to complex finger manipulations to doubleweave and beyond. Learn how to:
Warp your loom in a matter of minutes
Master simple finger manipulations
Use a pick-up stick to weave any pattern you choose
Use two heddles for fine fabrics and even double cloth
Add clever embellishments to your weaving as you go
And so much more!
You’ll find simple explanations of dozens of techniques as Jane guides you through a handsome Sampler. Trying the next new thing with this versatile loom is almost addictive. In a good way. Plus, you get printable PDFs of downloadable sampler instructions and “cheat sheets” included with the DVD!
