**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
Take it to the next level! If you already know the basics on your rigid heddle loom, learn to create beautiful lace patterns using pick-up sticks. The complicated-looking patterns can be achieved with relative ease. Make a beautiful scarf while mastering this technique and learning many lace patterns. You will be given a pattern to make a lovely shawl after class based on the techniques you learn in class. There will be lots of helpful weaving tips along the way.
The class session is divided into two sessions: 10 am - 12 pm, (2 hour break), 2 pm - 4 pm for a total of 4 hours of on-line instruction.
Homework: Warp loom prior to class, with a 72” long warp of 60 ends (30 slots, 30 eyes).
Supplies at home: Warped loom and shuttle, scissors, tapestry needle, tube from inside a paper towel roll, measuring tape, post it notes, straight pins, 2 pick up sticks appropriately sized for your loom, 12” x 1.5” piece of light cardboard or manila file folder, 400 yards of worsted weight yarn in a solid color that is smooth, strong, non-hairy, and at least 2 ply, about half of which will be used for your warp.
