Designing and Drafting

July 24 – 25, August 13 – 14 (class full), weaving experience on 4 to 8+ shaft looms is suggested.


This workshop will focus on designing and drafting block weave structures for multi-shaft looms, (8 to 16 shafts).  Participants will take their ideas and visions and turn them into working drafts for future projects.  We will use graph paper, colored pencils, markers, and other art supplies to aid in the design process.  The 2 day class ($175.00) runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day and includes all the drawing tools and paper you might need.  Participants are encouraged to bring ideas, drawings, and photographs of colors and patterns for inspiration that may be transformed into weaving drafts.

Independant Focus Weaving

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, counterbalance, and counter marche loom types are available to use.  Wool, cotton, linen, and synthetic fibers are on hand to use.  The weaver is supported and mentored during the design, set-up, and weaving processes. 

Have a Weaving Experience!

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, 508-221-3992
