Our Instructors

Check the sidebar for links to short bios of each of our instructors. Together, they represent hundreds of years of fiber experience which they readily share with their students.

Why are so many weaving classes full?

We offer pre-registration for our core weaving classes. Students enrolled in the second session prior to the new course offerings often elect to continue a project that is on a loom. Be sure to "wait list" for the course you want, as openings do occur. Wait-listed students are contacted about any opening whenever it occurs.

With our expanded studio space and additional looms, there will be new opportunities for all interested weavers. Each session will provide new offerings for learning: whether it be a workshop, an A to Z weaving course or specialty class exploring a weave structure. And please feel free to make a specific request. We’re always looking for ways to design courses that meet your needs.
