Fall and Winter Classes

 fall-bannerTeaching Ewe Classes

The response to our “Teaching Ewe” series has been amazing! This set of student-led classes allows you to “choose your own” knitting adventure.

Have you seen a class offered in the past and missed it?

Join a Teaching Ewe session that fits your schedule.

Is there a class you’ve been waiting for us to list and you want to start right away?

Teaching Ewe lets you choose what you learn in each session. Nervous about cables? Need help seaming? Looking to start a sweater and just need a little guidance? Teaching Ewe will help you get started.

Are you intimidated by the pace of large project classes?

Teaching Ewe lets you work at your own pace. If you are working on a larger project, you can skip a few sessions and meet up with us again when you are ready to move on to the next step in your project.

Choose a time that suits you. Day and evening classes are offered several times per month. Please call ahead to reserve your seat in class. We try to keep our classes small in order to accommodate the style of teaching. There is also a rare occasion that we may not hold a class due to lack of attendance and calling ahead allows us to schedule a teacher in advance.

Pricing is as follows:
1 session = $30.00 
3 sessions = $75.00
6 sessions = $125.00

IMG_9776Direct Warping your Rigid Heddle Loom
$75.00 – 2.5 hour class, 1 meeting
By appointment with Stephanie

Direct warping is a quick and easy way of dressing your loom that is well suited the simple warps typical of rigid heddle projects. If it is your first time direct warping, or it’s been a while and you need a helping hand, this class will get you set up and ready to weave on your rigid heddle loom. If you already know how to dress your loom using a warping board, this is another method you can add to your arsenal.

This class will cover:
estimating the size of your project (a scarf or similar)
calculating yardage requirements for warp and weft (using balanced plain weave)
direct warping your loom
This class is for weavers who already own a rigid heddle loom and have some basic weaving experience or have completed our beginning weaving class. This class is not intended for first time weavers. Please ask about our rigid heddle weaving classes or private lessons if you are a first time weaver.

IMG_9828Beginning Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom $175.00
Instructor: Stephanie Hill

The equivalent of a 2-harness loom, a rigid heddle allows you to weave light work, such as placemats, dish towels, scarves, shawls or fabric for clothing. The skills and techniques you will learn using a rigid heddle loom are all transferable to other types of looms, including table and floor looms, so start with a rigid heddle loom as a way to learn weaving. Your investment will be low compared to much larger looms, and you will discover the fun of weaving.
