Fall 2021 Class Registration is Open

 

The Weaving Center offers adults floor loom classes in our Hartford and Manchester locations.

     If you are new to weaving or a beginner weaver, we recommend you start in our Introduction to Floor Loom session. Our small class size allows for personalized instruction, so students can advance at their own pace over the nine-week session.

     Intermediate/Advanced students will receive individualized instruction based on their level and interest, and will be encouraged to explore the diversity of the craft.
