For the safety of my students ,  the studio is closed for group on- loom classes until further notice. I am open  by appt for one person at a time  for  tutoring ,  yarns and equipment. Please wear a mask and respect social distancing  when in the studio.

 

Current classes are held on-line through ZOOM. Please contact me  by email  for further instruction on how to register and connect online. 
Advanced beginners can independently set up their looms and have woven projects by reading directions in magazines or have taken a basic  4 Harness weaving class. Intermediate weavers  have taken the beginner drafting class and are familiar with a computer weaving program and are confident with  winding warps and more complicated threadings.


The Path- Inspired by Sound (on Zoom)

Thursdays  - Sept 9 - Oct 14, 2021

10am-3pm with  a 45 minute lunch break.  

$180

All levels

In this class , we follow a path with camera in hand, to record what we see  and create a woven( stitched , quilted, etc.)  record  of the  journey . In previous Path classes we used photos as inspiration but this time , we are focusing on  sound .  For some it may be song, a favorite piece of music, a reflection on an instrument or  it may be the sounds in the environment- birds , ocean, rain, wind chimes, a voice,  Can a sound have texture or color?  Perhaps the materials used make a sound.Think of vibration, rhythm, tones, sequence, harmony.

 

The on-line class  requires only a  sketchbook , camera/phone  and  a simple loom.  It is  designed to increase your color and tactile sensibility without  the stress of “ am I doing it right” and to explore new  techniques to help  express what you see or feel using what you have. As you develop ideas, they will  be expressed as small woven or stitched  pieces using simple techniques. These may result as finished pieces  or as experiments that serve as stepping stones to future journeys .

 

Sessions will include an introduction to the week’s assignment including visuals,  discussions ,readings ,videos and a  weekly check -in of work in progress.   

You will also develop a deeper connection to like minded weavers as students share their techniques and  thought processes and learn from each other.

 

Requirements-

For weavers- a loom ( rigid heddle, tapestry or harness are fine)  , internet connection with ZOOM , a willingness to research and share processes as they develop  and a commitment to doing the work  between classes. Stitchers and Surface Designers are welcome

Appropriate for all levels but must be able to independently set up your equipment.

Painted Warps Workshop-

Tuition: $150 members, $165 non-members

Explore the idea of color movement by learning to paint a warp with Fiber Reactive dyes. Students will learn how to make stock solutions, how to lay out their yarns, apply and set the dyes and then how to rinse the yarn without tangling ready for the loom. We will also learn how to paint coordinating weft yarns. Students will bring a two 5yd prepared warps (20” maximum width) and skeins to dye. They must be cellulosic fiber - cotton, rayon, tencel, bamboo, etc. Blends are fine. I will send more specific warping information several weeks before class so there is time to purchase yarns and make the warps. 
Please register early. A $10 materials fee will be collected in class. 

Students who have previously taken this class, can purchase an hourly studio card  at the main desk and participate  if there is room.  Please contact me if you are interested.
