Circular Weaving Workshop

Weaving as a sustainable practice can be rewarding and fun. It also connects us to the generations that came before us and a craft that endures the test of time. We will explore weaving with traditional and non-traditional fibers and textures beyond the use of yarn, color play and most importantly, the meditative aspect of this timeless art. You will be rewarded with a circular fabric swatch completed entirely by you, using a loom and your hands.

All supplies will be provided for your convenience during class and you will have a circular loom and some yarn to continue your work at home as well.

Marriage Quilt

This quilt started as a monochromatic dream for me and then the idea of having a pop a color arose as a way to infuse vitality and whimsy. Orange is one of those vibrant colors ever present in all the work that I do. This project is a marriage of improv freedom and organized chaos. It is also a deeply loved project that I would love to share with you if you can join us.  Instructor will be providing the use of AccuQuilt die cutting during class for ease of fabric cutting and sewing. We will also discuss traditional cutting of HST units using mat and fabric cutter. Original design grid will be provided with class registration if students would like to create the same layout.
