The art of weaving dates back 7,000 years – to the time of the Vikings. The techniques, materials and technologies have come a long way since then. But, as an art form and hand craft, nothing truly replaces hand weaving.
Hand weaving is calming. You get to discover and uncover your creative side and make something truly amazing. Of all the styles/methods of hand weaving, I personally enjoy weaving on the Rigid Heddle loom the most.
Rigid Heddle looms are affordable, portable and quiet. I get my greatest joy demonstrating the styles and techniques and then assisting someone as they learn to weave, especially watching their eyes light up.
Why not try something new (or in the case of weaving – something ancient) and see what you discover?
