Our Programs

The Weaving Center offers opportunities for everyone!
Classes for all ages
Year-round, we offer classes for all ages. Proceeds from these classes help us support our artisan program. The artisan program is supported by wonderful volunteers. Some volunteers have extensive weaving knowledge, and others are just happy to help in any way they can. You are also invited to tour the Weaving Center or shop year-round, from Monday through Friday.  Whatever your interest or ability, we would love for you to visit, or contact us to learn more about how you can join us. 

Why Weaving?

Weaving engages multiple senses to create a tangible product. When you learn to weave, you're learning a new language, and exploring a new way to express your creativity.
You feel the shed open when you press the treadles down.
You hear thread roll off the bobbin as you pass the shuttle through the open shed.
 
You hear and feel the shed close when you release the treadles.
 
You hear and feel the beater as you pull it forward, and it compacts individual threads into gorgeous fabric.
 
When you weave, you create your own, consistent rhythm, and produce something you can hold, and share with others.
