December is upon us! December 2nd and 3rd the gallery and weaving studio will be open (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) for Brewster’s Holiday event. The following weekend, Saturday December 9th will be open for the regular gallery work hours. December 14, 15, 16, and 17, the gallery will be closed due to my participation in the CraftBoston Holiday show at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Come visit me in booth #331! I plan to be open for business over the Christmas holiday vacation so please call Gretchen for the latest information, (508) 255-9022, or text me at 508-221-3992, (please leave your name).
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.
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.
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.
