Welcome to the Colour & Weave Study Group!

We are so happy you are here. The rigid heddle is one of the most approachable looms to weave with. If the beautiful pieces seen in the school have inspired you and you’ve been waiting for a sign to jump in, this is it!

Whether you are just starting or have plenty of experience, we hope you join us. This is the perfect opportunity to try a new-to-you yarn and either weave along with us using the course project or design your own woven textile.

We’ll work through the comprehensive Colour & Weave on Rigid Heddle Loom course by Amanda Wood. Join us throughout August as we work through the course syllabus and meet Amanda live for a Q&A.
