Intermediate/Advanced Beginner


Adults, 15 and up


Join Weaver/Instructor Yasmin Martin, and Assistant Instructor Sam MacDonald, for this fun weaving course! Take your weaving to the next level with Leno Lace! 

Leno, also known as Leno Lace, is a fingered controlled weave using a pick-up stick, done on a rigid heddle loom. This fun hand-manipulated lace technique can be used to show off fancy yarns or create striking, light and lacey designs! 

In this course you will first learn basic 1:1 Leno. We will then sample other Leno variations, creating a 36” Leno Lace Sampler, using a 10” Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom and a pick-up stick.  

Classroom looms and pick-up sticks are provided. You may also bring your own rigid heddle loom and warping tools, if you prefer


Please bring with you:

  • Scissors, Tape Measure, Blunt Tapestry Needle, Pen and Paper for taking notes.
  • Approximately 200 yards of #4 (worsted/medium weight), or #3 (DK weight) wool or wool blend suitable for weaving. It will be used for both warp and weft. (Please snap test for strength.)


Yasmin has been working with fiber for over 30 years, including crochet, embroidery, rug hooking, basketry, bead weaving, tapestry weaving, hand loom weaving, and most recently, spinning. She discovered rigid heddle looms 10 years ago, and fell in love with these small, versatile looms. “They are the perfect balance of simplicity and functionality.”
