Fiber Arts

This workshop is for people interested in Fiber Arts, from the beginner to the advanced. The focus will be on weaving with four and eight harness floor looms. Beginners will learn to design textiles, wind warps, dress looms and weave in a variety of patterns and materials. Intermediate and advanced students will have the opportunity to create complex textiles and large pieces using our 50, 54 and 60 inch looms. Sewing with handwovens, painting warps, designing knitwear and spinning wool will also be options. The weaving studio is equipped with 20 floor looms, sewing machines, spinning wheels and a knitting machine. We will work with natural fiber yarns including cotton, tencel, rayon, linen and wool. Please contact Melissa Johnson with any questions.
