NEW: Freeform Weaving with Anne Choi

We are excited to welcome Anne Choi of Middle Brook Fiberworks to teach a special free-form weaving class.  Here’s what Anne has to say about the class:

“Have you been intrigued by the idea of weaving but were intimidated by the formidable mechanics of the floor loom?  Me too! Freeform tapestry weaving is an expressive, process-oriented way to explore traditional handweaving techniques to create a piece that is personal and unique.  A tabletop loom enables us to incorporate a wealth of textures such as fluffy roving, long fleece locks, silk ribbon, cotton punis, and handspun art yarn.  We’ll learn how to set up the loom and plan a design.  Using various weave structures and knotting methods, we’ll discover how to achieve geometric shapes and contours.  Freeform weaving is imaginative, forgiving, and — be forewarned — completely addictive.”

No experience necessary.  All equipment and materials will be provided, but you are invited to bring any fibers or yarn you would like to include in your work.

Cost: $85
