Freestyle Weaving Workshop (Jan 11 & 12)

AGES: 13+.

January 11 & 12, Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 1-5pm

Introducing a “Freestyle” form of weaving for all ages and levels of weaving skills.

No experience necessary!

This workshop will start with the loom dressed to weave! All you have to do is come and enjoy creating your own piece of woven cloth. The loom will have a natural cotton yarn, so any colors you choose will be fine. There will be cones and balls of many different kinds and colors to choose from, including material cut or ripped into strips. You can also bring in anything you would like to use that you have on hand from other projects or if you find something that suits your fancy at a yarn store! Other optional items are ribbon, beads or buttons to add to your project. Some of these materials will be available for you to try.

Students should bring a pair of scissors and an open mind!

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.
