Rigid Heddle Weaving : Basic Warping

In this class, you will learn how to direct warp onto a rigid heddle loom. You will be making a houndstooth pattern using two contrasting colours of yarn that you need to bring with you to the lesson. You need to speak to someone at the shop prior to the lesson to find out what supplies you will need to bring, as it will vary depending on which loom and size of reed you will be using.

This course is aimed at complete beginners.


What to Bring on the Day

The lesson is usually taught using your own rigid heddle loom but if you do not own a loom you can speak to the shop to arrange the use of one of the shop looms. If you buy a loom from us at Heirs and Graces you do get this class free with the loom.

Tea and Coffee will be provided on the day. Please bring a packed lunch.


The classes are run on an ongoing basis. Please call the shop on 01629 734100 to arrange a date that suits.


The cost of this class is £48 plus materials. It runs from 10 am until 4 pm.

“I haven’t used my sewing machine for years and was quite nervous about starting again. I needn’t have worried, the course was taken at my pace and there was loads of help from Anne. I’m looking forward to the rest of the training days in the ‘Block’ and have resolved to keep sewing!!”

Sally Johnson, Block a Month

“I booked the Block a Month early this year and it’s been fabulous. I have had loads of help from Anne and the team and feel much more confident in my sewing skills now. Let’s just say a few family members will be getting homemade Christmas presents this year. Next year, I may give embroidery a try!!”
