Easy Belt Weaving – mini Sculptures!

The belt-weaving 2DPI Rigid Heddle Kit is a relaxing way to learn the first steps of weaving a cloth. You are placed in a circle facing a center pole and work an allocated time to complete step by step of the overall activity. The circle expands and contracts as the tasks develop giving students a nice sense of collaborative work.

Your FREE weaving workshop includes:
  1. A small group of up to six people, lasting approximately 30 minutes
  2. Threading already set up warp through the rigid heddle.
  3. Collaborating with weaving expert; Paula Cordeiro
  4. TAKE HOME your own creation!
