The Weaving Center's 'Phase 1' of reopening will begin August 17 for artisans and volunteers by appointment only. The Center is currently not open to the public. The health and safety of our artisans, volunteers, staff and visitors continue to be top priorities.
If you have questions or need assistance, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In non-Covid times, if you would like to visit the center to shop or see a live demonstration of handweaving, we welcome visitors Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Uniquely designed handwoven items are available for purchase at our store. During the month of October, our shop is closed as we get ready for our Open House & Sale.
Winter weather: we follow the same schedule as Hartford Public Schools. If Hartford Public Schools are closed due to winter weather, we will also be closed. If Hartford Public Schools have a 2 hour delay, we will open at our regularly posted hours. We update our status on our Facebook & Instagram pages.
In addition to our Annual Open House in November, we participate in events around the region, and host classes throughout the year. Scroll through our events calendar to learn more.
Getting to the Weaving Center
The Weaving Center is located behind 40 Woodland St., a uilding with large white pillars in the front. Look for our wrought iron gate, which is on the south side of the driveway. We're allocated the last two parking spots on the side of the building, but you can park anywhere in the back. Once you exit your car, come back to the wrought iron gate, and press the buzzer, we'll buzz you through the gate and the glass door. And then the fun begins...
