Two Day Double Heddle Weaving in Liverpool
8th & 9th March
7th & 8th June
What is double heddle weaving?
Double Heddle Weaving will allow you to weave extra patterns using your rigid heddle loom. Not only that but it will also mean you can weave double the width of your loom. So if you have a 32" loom you can weave 64"(ish) cloth - imagine the things you can create with fabric that size, it opens a whole new world!
Double Heddle weaving isn't necessarily complicated but it can take a bit of getting your head around it so if you like to learn with support, this workshop will be great for you.
What do I need to bring?
Ideally you will have your own rigid heddle loom and two heddles with the same dpi. We normally work with sock yarn and we'd like you to work with colours you like so two 8dpi heddles is great.
We do have a small selection of looms you can borrow but it's a first come first served situation so bear that in mind. Also, if you have your own loom you can warp up and then not have to cut your work at the end of the workshop, you can just take your loom home and carry on.
Is this course suitable for beginners?
No, this definitely isn't. You will need to have a basic understanding of how a loom works and be comfortable with weaving. If you want to build up your confidence then take a look at our Two Day Rigid Heddle Weaving course which will take you through everything you need to know.
What else do I need to know?
The workshop will be held at Luna Meeting Room, behind Ryde Cafe in the Northern Lights Building, 5 Mann Street, Liverpool, L8 5AF, part of Cains Brewery Village
