2.2 Warping for Clasped Weft

Amanda Wood October 12, 2021

Amanda Wood shows us how to make a direct warp in this 2.2 Warping for Clasped Weft video . She will wind the warp onto the back bar, also known as beaming the warp. She will then finish up with threading the heddles and tying the warp onto the front of the rigid heddle loom.

One of the best advantages of a rigid heddle loom is the ability to direct warp. Not only is it easy but the more you practice, the faster it will go. Each step is essential to having a good weaving experience. From proper ties to tension, Amanda will guide us through this process step-by step.

If you need a refresher on basic rigid heddle weaving, warping, and more, rewatch the Rigid Heddle Basics course here in the School of SweetGeorgia.

Now is a good time to ready your bobbins and stick shuttles. If you are using a boat shuttle, you can refer to the Clasped Warp & Weft on Rigid Heddle Workbook PDF it has a paper bobbin template for you to make your own bobbins. Of course, you can always purchase them, as well: Ashford Boat Paper Shuttle Bobbins.

In the next lesson, we will make a header that will spread out the warp. After a quick hemstitch, we will be able to start weaving our clasped weft scarf project!
