The course starts with how to use a simple frame loom. Learn the basics of getting started with threading (warping) the loom, simple weaving and adding colour and texture.
The next set of videos progress to using the versatile, economical and simple to use 'rigid heddle' loom which can be used to weave just about anything. We learn to warp (thread) the loom, and to weave some simple patterns, to take the fabric off the loom and to finish it. with these looms, you can weave things like scarves, tea towels and fabric for larger projects such as a skirt or jacket.
A simple frame loom to get started and some knitting yarn in Aran (sport) weight. Either wool or acrylic mix yarn is fine. do not use yarns like cotton or linen to start with. They are much harder to work with because they are not stretchy.
