Rigid heddle looms are simple low cost looms that are suitable for a multitude of woven textiles including scarves, shawls, placements, dish towels, and fabric for clothing or other sewing projects. In this class, weprovide the looms and equipment you need for class so you can decide if you enjoy weaving before you invest in a loom.
