FAVA Fiber Arts Studio Now Open!

We are excited to open a dedicated space for fiber arts education. We look forward to the Fiber Arts Studio being a place where weavers and other students can feel comfortable sharing ideas and techniques with other students and instructors, and progress in their fiber arts skills.  We hope it will be of great benefit in drawing people to create and develop lifelong skills.

Students will have the opportunity to reserve looms to work on projects at their own pace in an open studio setting or enroll in workshops to have fun experiencing something new. Call 440-774-7158 for information on reserving looms.

Scroll down for the current listings of fiber arts workshops.

Updated Mask and Vaccination Policy

As of April 1, 2022, FAVA will no longer require proof of vaccinations for our classes. We are also lifting our mask requirement for vaccinated visitors. We ask that anyone unvaccinated please continue to mask up, but masks are optional for vaccinated visitors to all FAVA spaces. The decision to continue to wear a mask (or not) once someone is vaccinated is deeply personal, so we ask that everyone honor everyone else’s decisions. We will, of course, continue to keep an eye on both national and local health guidance and adjust our policies in the future if necessary.
