Structures & Samples, Summer 2018

Samples & Structures; June 26 – 28, July 24 – 26, August 21 – 23.

Experience weaving on at least 4 shaft looms is helpful.  This class is for weavers with an interest in knowing more about structure development in 4 to 8 shaft loom controlled systems.  Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with different threadings, tie-ups, and treadlings.  We will focus on structures of interest to the participants.  Students can bring their own looms that are set-up in advance or work on looms that will be set up for experimentation ahead of time.  The three day class price of $225.00 includes; instruction, use of the weaving studio equipment, yarns, and materials.  Participants are encouraged to bring a 3 ring binder to contain class notes.  Contact Gretchen to sign up for class.  Email her at, romeytanzer@comcast.net.

Have a Weaving Experience!

If you have ever been curious about weaving, here is your chance!  Come for a day and go home with a scarf or something for your table or wall.  No experience necessary.  I charge $100.00 for a day of weaving, materials included.  If you decide weaving is something you would like to get more involved with, take one of my other classes or come in for Friday and Saturday mentorship sessions.  The day experience runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Call Gretchen for more information, #508-255-9022.
