Begin your journey into the world of weaving. We will practice warping repeatedly during our time together. You will see how the loom helps you produce many weaves on one threading and you will also begin to understand color interactions. Woven structures and color interaction are the two basic elements of woven design. We will practice the methods of working that are most efficient and ergonomic. You will leave the class with a sampler of structures and four napkins or two towels from your color studies.

This is a 5 week class and we meet on Wednesdays from 9am-2pm

Over, under then under, over.  The simplest weave structure is easy on the small, portable rigid heddle loom.  Preparing the loom to weave is quick & it does all the work for you. We will play with color and texture and introduce some finger manipulated techniques and the option of using more than one heddle. Weave at least one scarf or two towels or placemats during your time in class.

Our class meets on Wednesdays for 5 weeks from 2pm-5pm

Build your Own Loom

Build your Own Loom

I have always felt strongly about making art accessible to everyone. "Build your own Loom" is a class designed with that in mind. Weaving can be accomplished without a big investment or big equipment. Weaving has been around a long time and countless methods and tools have been created and modified - and the result is still cloth. 
In this three week class we will review historical weaving methods and distill the commonalities between them. We will build a simple loom in class that you can take home with you and weave on. This will be a fun class where you can walk away with the basic tools to begin on your weaving journey. Come weave with me!

Class begins on March 27 and runs for three weeks, we meet on Tuesdays from 1pm-5pm.
