Winter 2018

At the Studio

Happy New Year! I'm starting the year at a new location  just 2 blocks away from my former studio. It's larger so there is plenty of room
 for looms plus a separate classroom. I want to thank my wonderful students for their encouragement and help on moving day. Right now I'm painting and setting up shelving and putting together looms and  I will reopen on Jan 16th, 2018.  Initially hours are  on Tues 10:30-5:00 , Friday  10-5pm and  by appt.  Just give a call to let me know when you are coming.

It is wonderful to work with all levels of  weavers and to witness the networking and friendships that have developed.  Classes and workshops are listed  on the CLASSES page. You can see my own and students'  works  on my Facebook page- www.facebook.com/PamPawlHandwovenTextiles . If you have a chance to visit Dunedin, please stop by to see what's on the looms and walls.
