NEXT STEPS IN WEAVING: A 5 day Intermediate Level Workshop

Date: July 26-30 

Time: 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Price: $245, includes all materials
Ages: 10+, class size is limited

 

Students will learn about and try out a variety of different weave structures on prepared looms in the classroom space in our studios in Hartford. In addition, we’ll work as a group to wind a warp and dress a loom, do some off-loom activities, and end up with a completed scarf and a sewn project to take home.

 

This class is great for:

  • Students who have completed our “Explore” class and are ready for a 5 day workshop

  • Older beginners (5th grade and up)

  • Students who've taken the intermediate weaving class before and want to take it again to discover new weave structures and make different projects.

 

ADVANCED WEAVING: An 8 day Advanced Level Workshop

Date: July 19-21 and July 26-30

Time: 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Price: $350, includes all materials
Ages: 10+, class size is limited

Students will use the first three days to plan, wind your warp, and thread your loom. The next week you'll come back to weave, and finish your project!

 

These classes are intended for older students who are eager to design and execute their own individual projects. Working with an instructor, they will complete all steps of the process from planning their project, to winding a warp, threading the loom, weaving and finishing. Students can create a project on a larger scale or with a more intricate weave structure; or a poncho, boundweave wall hanging, messenger bag, or other project they may have in mind! Students will work in our classroom space in our studios in Hartford.
