In weaving there is always something new to learn and sometimes the challenge lies in finding our focus amid so many fascinating possibilities! The richness found in group study is enhanced by collaborating, as we share our successes as well as our mistakes. In this 8-week class, the choice is yours, to pursue independent study to weave whatever you wish. You will gain experience in planning your warp and dressing your loom.
Weekly brief presentations will focus on how different weave structures are achieved through their threading and treadling as well as what yarns are most appropriate for them. The remainder of the class is reserved for all things weaving at your loom.

Class time is supplemented by several 2-hour open studios a week to provide more time at the loom.
