Rug Weaving with “upcycled” T’shirts. 8 to 10 large T’shirts can be used to weave a sturdy and soft 22″ x 48″ floor rug. This three day class is for the weaver who has some experience working on a 4 shaft floor loom. We use a double sided pattern that gives the weaver a wide variety of design possibilities. February 5 – 7, three day class, $225.00, materials included. Call Gretchen at 508 221-3992, or email at email@example.com.
Weavers of all skill levels are welcome to book a one, two, or three day weaving focus session to work on a particular structure or fiber that has been of interest to the weaver. Four to twelve shaft jack and counter marche loom types are available to use. Wool, cotton, linen, and synthetic fibers are on hand to experiment with. The weaver is supported and mentored during the design, set-up, and weaving processes. For first time visitors a one day fee is $100.00. For following days there is a $50.00 charge, (half days are okay!) 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For weavers who have demonstrated a commitment to weaving and working on a regular basis in the gallery, the fee changes to $100.00 per month for unlimited use of the weaving studio looms and tools. The weaver must provide their own fiber for larger projects. When weaving samples you can use studio materials.
