Weaving Calculations (Dec 2)

INSTRUCTOR WITHDREW WORKSHOP

AGES 16+

The very first steps in a weaving project are the foundation of the whole project. There are many decisions to make about patterns and yarn and finishing touches to be done. This workshop teaches you how to get started. This process can be used with any floor or table loom. 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. We will discuss the types and sizes of yarns. Each person will learn to do their own calculations on a form provided, with step-by-step instructions of why and what needs to be included. There will be one warping board for everyone to take turns on to get the feel of getting the yarn prepared for the loom. If you wish to bring your own warping board you can start your own warp to finish at home.

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

Mary Carmosino

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.
