Start to Finish

A weaving essentials class open to all weavers but is geared for people newer to weaving.  Participants will learn how to draw out a design, set-up a loom, weave, and finish a project.  We will focus on the design potential of color and texture, while making a sound piece of cloth.  Participants will develop a better understanding of what makes a good piece of cloth based on the desired function of the piece.   The class runs for three consecutive days, for $225.  Price includes instruction, use of studio equipment, yarns, and materials.  Participants are welcome to bring their own yarn and looms if desired.  

Band Weaving, Fall 2017

Band Weaving

Participants will use Inkle looms to create decorative and useful woven bands.  We will experiment with color and pattern, focusing on Scandinavian traditions.  Woven bands are fundamental to many world cultures.  The class can be taken for one, two, or three days.   Price includes instruction, use of studio equipment, yarns, and materials.  Participants are welcome to bring their own yarn and looms if desired.
