Spring Floor Loom class registration is closed

Our Floor Loom class program begins each September with our Fall classes. Students who register for our Beginner, Beyond Beginner or Intermediate/Advanced Fall Floor Loom class and choose to continue, will receive priority registration for additional Floor Loom classes within that year. This format allows a student to continue to build skills and confidence in weaving. However, because of this, space is limited for class registration for our Winter and Spring classes. If you are currently on our waitlist and a space becomes available, we will notify you.


If you prefer, please add your name to be notified for upcoming classes. If you add your name, we will notify you in advance about the opening day/time of registration. All registration is through this website, we do not accept mailed in registrations or registration in advance.


Note: All weaving classes are held on our lower level which is only accessible by stairs.
