The backstrap loom is used to teach groups, it’s a great portable loom that you can take home with you, small groups can learn Bedouin weaving that can be set up in anyone’s garden, and Navaho looms are used for group projects, Inkle looms can be ordered with professional instruction.

“Rikma Enoshit” -Group weaving projects for a class or family event. The class or family gets a unique woven piece made by all the guests.

Special workshops for 6th grade Bat Mitzva classes where the girls and their mothers can reconnect and learn the skills of their great great.. grandmothers.

Special workshops for school groups learning about the weaving and other crafts necessary for building the mishkan.

    Hello, do you have a hands on demonstration of weaving like they did in the second beis hamikdosh?


    How long are the workshops and are they scheduled or do you work with small groups — 4 or 5 people — at a mutually convenient time? What are the costs?
