30″x46″, $1300.00. Handwoven of fine cotton thread, hand sewn to a stretched canvas. The piece can be hung horizontally (as shown) or vertically.
Weaving with Linen; is a class for the moderate to advanced weaver. We will have available fine linen fiber as well as more course linen fibers to work with. Linen has traditionally been used for house wares, curtains and table linens. Linen fiber tends to be stiff and unruly when worked with but generates lovely fabric with a smooth and glossy texture. Linen can be woven into delicate transparent fabrics that are perfect for weft inlay. This class is scheduled to last three days but can be reduced to two days if necessary. All materials provided, $225.00 for 3 days, $175.00 for 2 days.
Double Binding technique is a 4 shaft rug weaving technique championed by Scandinavian weavers. It is possible to design and weave two sided rugs. We will be using “upcycled” Tshirts for weft with sturdy cotton rug fiber for the warp. A 24″ x 48″ rug uses about 8 large Tshirts. You will be shown how to process the Tshirts but can use the stock of processed shirts I have accumulated. The cotton warps will be wound on and ready to be threaded to your desired block design. The class is scheduled for two days but can be taken for one day. Cost includes materials, $100.00 for one day, $175.00 for two days.
October and November the Studio and Gallery will be open from Wednesday thru Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. October’s focus will be on Double Binding rug weaving technique. November’s focus will be weaving with Linen, (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.
