Registration for our Fall classes is open!

Our classes in Manchester are taught in a studio space at the Manchester Historical Society, housed in one of the historic Cheney Mills buildings. The Floor Loom class program begins in October with our Fall classes. Students who register for our Beginner, Beyond Beginner,  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 the 2nd floor which is only accessible by stairs. 

Beginner Floor Loom Weaving 

Are you interested in learning to weave on a floor loom or has it been so long since you have woven, you need to start at the beginning? If this sounds like you, our Beginner Floor Loom Class is the class for you.  

Beginners will be introduced to the loom and all steps of weaving, including winding a warp, threading a loom, reading a draft, and weaving a variety of patterns.
