Here are a couple of photos from just some of my workshops, in person and virtual. 

As in the past, my tutoring and workshop fees go to animal charities who have a greater need. 

Painting for an Artisan Scarf - in person workshop

If you're a weaver looking for a new technique to take you to that next level, consider starting your own

line of painted fashion scarves using an extremely easy method to paint your warps.

I am now offering a one-day weavers' workshop in Computer Design and Drafting, using Fiber Works PCW. I can supply a demo download for participants or directions to download from the web ahead of time, so that participants can come fully prepared. Take weaving to the next level by designing your own work and be  proud of your weaving results.     

OR

If your guild  members aren't ready to jump in to weave drafting, I'm also offering  a one-hour   program to incentivise your members to take the plunge.  

This can easily be given as a ZOOM Workshop or the abbreviated version mentioned above as an 

Intro to Computer Drafting 

program in one-three individual parts

I've been in the side-business of restoring old looms for years and have encountered nearly every make and model, and shared my tips in Handwoven magazine articles. It's a shame to see a good loom sit idle for want of a tune-up or a new part. This is a program designed for weavers' guilds and groups. I also consult and give guidance if you want to buy or sell equipment and I usually know most of the market resources.   

This can easily be given as an in-person or Zoom Program

WEAVING  LOOM COMPENDIUM:  Loom Maintenance, Repair and How to Make Your Loom Work  with You

Double Weave

Double Weave is the easiest thing to learn, but it's probably better to take a workshop for your first go at it. One warp and we go thru nine different techniques to play with. Double layers, double cloth, windows, laces, little stuffed pillows within the cloth....

In-person workshop only

Crackle Weave - Mysteries and Magic. This class is comprised of fundamentals of the crackle structure, drafting using computer enhanced draw-downs (and a solid intro to computer drafting) , and hands on weaving using a multitude of treadling combinations. You'll learn something of twills, summer&winter, overshot and lace in the process. Plan on two 6- hour days for this workshop. 

In-person workshop only 

I always offer one-on-one tutorials and can

design a course just for your individual interests.
