Age Range: Teens and Adults
2021 marks our 6th annual summer weaving class. Each year it gets better and better! We hope you will come join the fun!
Sara’s weaving intensive meets the needs of all weaving levels. If you are a beginner but have always wanted to learn to weave, this class is for you. You will put on a new small warp every morning and weave it off in the afternoon. By the end of the 5 days, you will really know how to set up a loom on your own.
If you have a loom, but haven’t woven in years and need a refresher, this class is also for you. If it’s possible for you to transport your loom to class, then you can learn on your own loom. Every loom has its own quirky personality and the class will help you make the best use of the equipment you have.
If you are an experienced weaver and want to expand your knowledge to include some new weave structures or kinds of yarn, how to use a warping paddle, how to use a computer for creating pattern drafts, or how to read block drafts, then this class is also for you. More advanced students can spend 5 days working on one project, with the support of the instructor.
Because this is a small class, Sara will work with students individually at their level. You may communicate with Sara prior to class so that you come to class ready to begin. Students who have taken the class in the past are certainly welcome to return!
All necessary weaving equipment and yarn will be provided, though students are welcome to use their own yarn as well.
Provided by instructor: looms, yarn, and all other equipment
Students should bring the following:
• Best but not required: a loom
• Optional: Any yarn you have that you want to use
• Samples and/or photos of your weaving and other fiber work
