Color and Weave Series: Houndstooth

What is Color and Weave?
Simply put, it is all about making patterns by adding different colors to the warp and the weft. This is great on a rigid heddle loom because you can make a beautiful pattern without necessarily using pickup sticks, a second rigid heddle or even more complicated adjustments.
In this class we explore the houndstooth pattern.
We will warp in class to show tricks for using multiple colors. If you bring your own loom you can warp for a scarf project. If you need to borrow ours you will work on a sample in class that you can take home with you
