Many rigid-heddle weavers learn the direct warping method first. It is a great way to get started, but it does have some limitations. Join Yoriko and learn how to warp your rigid-heddle loom using the traditional, indirect warping method, aka front-to-back.

Here are some of the benefits of the traditional method of warping your rigid heddle loom:
– If you have mobility issues, this method, combined with a warping board, is much easier on your body. (You can warp your loom without walking back and forth or even standing up at all!)
– This method expands your creativity. You can create any warp you want.
– It doesn’t require a large space to warp your loom.
– You can create and wind on a very long warp — warp once and weave 3 or 4 scarves!

Note: Previous weaving experience may be helpful, but not required.
