    Join resident artist  Karen Donde in the Local Cloth Studio on Thursdays for small-group weaving classes tailored to your experience level. Maximum three students at a time. No minimums. Students at all levels may be in the studio together, which creates a great environment for cooperative learning. Book 6-hour packages, 18-hour packages, or if you need help with a specific subject, by the hour.  You may bring your own loom to take home each day or use one of Karen’s. If using Karen’s looms, 6-hour packages must be completed in two weeks, and 18-hour packages must be completed in 6 weeks. Contact Karen about what you’d like to learn and scheduling availability, then purchase your class package here.

    All levels

    Materials fee: $5 for handouts + $ for yarn purchase as needed

    Combine woven shibori, a loom controlled patterning system using temporary gathering threads, with silk noil and Lanaset dyes to create samples or a scarf. Bring your 4-8 harness loom dressed with a dummy warp 180 ends sett at 12epi (instructions and threading drafts will be provided) ready to tie on silk.  In addition to the aforementioned loom, participants will need to bring 2 shuttles, bobbins, warp separator (paper or sticks), scissors, seam ripper and other tools for weaving. A pickup stick longer than 15" is optional. Manual bobbin winders will be available. Learn the process. Handouts will support taking your new skills to your home studio.

    Skill Level: Intermediate

    Materials fee: $35 for silk noil warps (one per participant), silk weft, embroidery floss, dyes (including vinegar and sodium alginate), handouts, woven shibori samples, miscellaneous tools (plastic containers, brushes, cross holders, etc.)

    Learn embroidery stitches to enhance your felt pieces for the wall, table tops, hats or clothing. Learn what needles to use and stitch with a number of different kinds of "threads" to see how they look on felt. Bring your scraps of felt to embellish and practice the stitches on. We will make a book out of them for future stitching reference.
