Double Heddles/Double Weave/Double Wide

Using Deborah Jarchow's method, we will work with students who have some experience with the rigid heddle and want to move on the the next level.  Students will warp the looms and learn how to set up and thread both heddles to enable the double heddle weaving.  Then they will weave cloth at double the sett of the heddle used and create various beautiful patterns that the extra heddle makes possible.  They will learn how to create 2 layers of cloth, each a different color, learn how to make pockets or tubes in the woven cloth and finally, they will create cloth that is twice as wide as their loom.
