I have retired from my full time teaching job as a high school art teacher (29 years!). This means that the Tanzer Weaving Studio and Gallery will be open for business and weaving classes on a more regular basis during the week. Starting in September the Studio and Gallery will be open from Wednesday thru Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Band weaving and Double Weave Design classes are proposed for September, (see class list for further details). The Studio and Gallery is always open for weavers that want to use the larger looms and would like some guidance and the positive group experience the Weaving studio has to offer.
Beginning Weaving; June 19 – 21, July 17 – 19, August 14 – 16.
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 (scarf, table runner, or decorative wall 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.
