Introducing: The Double Shedding Device Weave-Along

Update: You can now sign up for (and learn more about) this weave-along here

A weave-along is a FREE online course. Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok of Mirrix Looms will lead participants through a project woven on a loom. Every Sunday participants will get an email going over what participants worked on week before and giving instructions and tips for the week ahead. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media sites including the Mirrix Facebook Page, Mirrix Facebook Group and Mirrix Ravelry Page. This is a community event!

See our previous weave-alongs here.

Weave-Along 14, which will begin in September, is for people who have woven at least some tapestry before. (If you need a little experience, check out Rebecca Mezoff’s online tapestry class before the weave-along begins.)

In this weave-along, participants will learn a technique of weaving with two shedding devices. This technique allows you to make a more textured tapestry. You’ll be able to weave, let’s say, 14 dents per inch and, at the same time, 7 dent per inch.

The piece will not have a pattern, but will be a tapestry done with silk and Waverly wool. You will be able to buy supplies from our website, but can also use your own!

As part of the weave-along, we will give a discount on

purchasing a second shedding device.

More information to come next week! Let us know if you’re interested in the comments, by email or via social media!

    I am interested in this concept of 2 shedding devices. I have a Mirrix 16″ loom. What price would the second shedding device be? Thank you.

    Mac and I are anxious to try it!
    Does it matter which size loom we use?

    Any size (8″ and larger, of course) will work. The project will be scalable!
