Beginning Weaving

August 21 – 23, September 4 – 6, and October 16 – 18. For new weavers and those who seek a refresher class.

Participants will design a project (scarf, wall hanging, or table runner), select yarns, wind a warp, “dress” a 4 shaft floor loom, and weave the project.  Weavers will learn the vocabulary of weaving and develop a better understanding of the process.  The 3 day workshop ($225.00) includes use of the studio’s equipment, yarn, and space.  The days run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (with a break at mid-day for a snack or lunch).

Contact the weaving studio if none of the class sessions fit your schedule and we will work out a private class that works better for you.

Rug Weaving

August 28 – 30, Some weaving experience helpful but not required.

The workshop will focus on double binding, (a reversible block structure).  With found fabrics such as old cotton t-shirts, cotton sheets, and assorted rug yarns, we will design and weave colorful floor rugs that are soft and functional. The three day class ($225.00) includes use of the studio looms, material, yarns, and assorted tools.  We meet from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, with a break at mid-day for lunch or a snack.
