Learn to Weave in a Weekend

It can be challenging to learn a new skill, and weaving is no different. That’s why expert weaver Sara Bixler designed this comprehensive course to give you the support, techniques, and advice you need to weave successfully on a rigid-heddle loom.

You’ll find everything you need in one place, including:

  • Common weaving terms to teach you the lingo
  • Tools and equipment and how to use them
  • Parts of the loom and steps to get yours set up
  • Ways to incorporate stripes for colorful and easy design variations
  • Advice for great on-loom warp tension and much more

Learn at your own pace and in the best way for you. Watch the entire course and then apply your new skills, weave as you go, or mix and match the two methods. It’s up to you! 

As you watch, you’ll learn to weave a beautiful Fibonacci striped scarf with Sara’s guidance. You can also try one of the many design options Sara describes in the video and that we’ve included in the course workbook. That course workbook comes with the video and provides resources and insights to help you now and down the road.
