Materials (and tools for tapestry weaving) are available at the studio and may be purchased separately as needed.
Wheels and looms are available in the studio, and once projects are underway, students may use the studio for independent work on Monday afternoons.
* PLEASE NOTE:Both sessions needed (10 weeks) to complete a Navajo weaving.
We also offer pre-dressed looms for those who wish to begin with weaving and do not want to warp. Extra costs vary by project.
Make-up classes have become problematic causing confusion and tying up looms into the 2nd session. It works to do make-up classes by doubling up (morning and evening sessions) in the same session of classes you signed up for.
Class sizes are limited.
