School is back in session and the Tanzer Weaving Studio and Gallery has transitioned to its fall schedule. The space will be open for weaving instructions and gallery viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday. It will also be open the occasional Sunday, so please call Gretchen for the latest information, (508) 255-9022.
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.
The Weaving studio and Gallery, located at 2623 Main St., Brewster, MA, will be open for individual weaving projects and mentorship every Saturday throughout the fall, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. New and existing students are welcome to come use the looms and equipment to further their weaving knowledge and skill. New students will be charged $100.00 for the first session and $50.00 for subsequent weaving studio sessions. Depending on the proposed project, there might be a nominal materials fee. I am looking forward to working with all of you who want to start or continue to weave.
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.
