Have a loom and not sure what to do with it? Need a refresher to get started on your own loom?

Weaving on a loom takes more preparation than most people expect. This workshop is to learn the basics for beginning a weaving project. It includes: a small project design for mug mats, calculations for materials, warping, dressing a demo loom, and starting to weave the project. Everyone will participate throughout the class. This process can be used with any floor loom and adapted to most table looms, If you have a good understanding of what these steps entail the weaving of the project can be much more enjoyable and have a successful finish.

If you would like to complete a portion on the demo loom to take home the available time to do that is: Saturday after class before 5pm or schedule a time on Sunday from 1-4pm. When the weaving is complete the pieces will be available to pick up at FAVA. If you have questions, please email the instructor at mmmcarmo@gmail.com

Students should bring a calculator pencil, eraser, and paper for notes.

I have been weaving for over ten years and enjoying every minute of learning from my mistakes, successes and other weavers!

I began on a Union 36 rug loom and now weave on a 8-harness 22 inch Harrisville floor loom. This has kind of forced me to learn the double weave process in order to weave wider pieces on this loom. Double weave has also opened new doors to other techniques and pattern design for new projects.

In the last six years I have assisted teaching at FAVA for the January Term Weaving Class which was created by Betsy Bruce in 2001. Working with college students and first time weavers was a large learning experience for everyone involved including me.

Now I enjoy sharing what I have learned with others! So come join me at FAVA along with other teaching artists and use the creativity we all have inside!

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)

**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
