A WOVEN JOURNEY

Travel to the fascinating land of weaving!

 No experience necessary.

If you have never woven or need a full refresher, this long-running, tried and true beginner’s weaving outing is for you.

 Monday evenings   6-8:30pm

Session cost – $315

Six student maximum

Along with instruction, everything you need is included in the cost – use of a 4 shaft Schacht table loom and weaving equipment/tools, fibers for your gamp, plus a folder filled with weaving information. Fibers for this spring session were sourced from New England sheep and Angora goats, small mill spun, and naturally hand-dyed.

 *Gamp – “Charles Dickens’ character Sairey Gamp (in Martin Chuzzlewit) was notable for carrying a large, multi-colored umbrella. From her name developed both an English slang word for a large, baggy umbrella and – among American handweavers – a term signifying a multi-colored and/or multi-patterned woven sampler.”
