Welcome to Rigid Heddle Weaving Basics! In this course, we are going to introduce you to using a rigid heddle loom. This little loom is quite a powerful and versatile piece of equipment and can help you to weave cloth that could be used for everything from scarves and shawls to textiles for the home. This loom is ideal for those who are just wanting to start out in weaving but don’t want to invest the money or space on a floor loom.
