Kitchen towels never go out of style and you can give them away for holiday gifts.
Weave beautiful, one of a kind kitchen towels. The looms will be setup to weave on. There will be several design options to choose from; (Turned Taquéte, Huck, Twill, and Bumberet). Cotton, Cotton/linen, and Tencel fiber will be used in any color the studio has on hand. You can generally weave a towel off in a one day session, (10 a.m to 3:30 p.m.). A flat fee of $55.00 per towel will be charged, (woven at 19″ to 20″ wide x 30″ long – before washing) this includes the time and materials. Some weaving experience necessary. Contact Gretchen if interested, 508-221-3992.
My work will be on display at the Cahoon Museum of American Art, in Cotuit, MA from November 8 to December 22, 2019. The opening reception will be November 8, from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
The Weaving Studio and Gallery will be open Tuesday thru Saturday, (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) during October and November. The fall is a busy time, so call ahead, 508-221-3992.
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. Samples can use studio materials.
