    Join us for Rigid Heddle Weaving with Reina Young and Helen Rau

    This class introduces new weavers to the portable rigid heddle loom. Weavers have the option to create a scarf, table runner, or placemats. We will go over different pattern techniques, play with color palettes, experiment with various fibers, and learn how to warp and dress the loom.


    The rigid heddle loom is essentially a rectangular, wooden frame loom. However, it differs from the simple frame looms that are now readily available and often used for tapestry, as it has space for a heddle/reed, making it capable of producing sheds (gaps or spaces) to weave through. It is a 2 shaft loom, but has further reaching capabilities.

    This class is open to any skill level. There will be an additional supply fee of $25, to include yarn and weaving tools, payable to the instructor on the first day of class. All supplies and materials will be provided. 

    What to Bring: 

    • $25 supply fee
    • Notebook and pen

    Join us for Colors that Sing! Colors that Sell!! with Mari Macmillan.

    Learn how to put colors together so they play nicely together, rather than getting into a fight.  This is not a class on color theory.

    We will cover these topics:

    VALUE - What is it, how to use it?

    WARM and COOL colors - How to mix them?

    PROPORTION - Ratio, zingers, and focal point. 

    CONTRAST - And the importance of NEUTRALS.  

    COLOR CARDS - Why you have problems using them.




    There will be a $10 supply fee, for handouts, wheels, exercises, worksheets, payable to the instructor at class. 

    What to Bring

    • $10 supply fee
    • Notebook and pen/pencil
    • Samples of "your" colors you want to work with (yarns, a photo, etc.)
    • Project that was a color-failure, and you don't know why (optional)
    • Weaving project you want to pick the colors for, and have it turn out well (optional)

    Instructor Bio

    Mari has been weaving for over 30 years, and admits to being a color junkie. She has made lots of ugly stuff and has learned, finally, why some colors look truly AWFUL together in one combination and breathtakingly beautiful in another.  You, too, can learn why this happens and how to plan a project that makes you happy.

    Join us for Tapestry Rendezvous with Kathe Todd-Hooker.

    The Rendezvous is all about weaving a tapestry from start to finish picking-up the skills and techniques as we weave. It's about weaving the image or pictures you want to weave. Saying what you want to weave.

    Can't draw. Well, there are ways  around that. Best of all there are no tapestry police that are going to come and take your loom away from you if you don't do it in a specific way. But here's the good thing-the great thing-once you learn a few basic skills. It can be as easy as using a coloring book, but with yarn and you can always weave outside the lines to tell your own narrative or not.  I am not going to lie it does take practice and sometimes a bit of determination. So come and try it.

    Tapestry is a plain weave construct in which the weft generally covers the warp and rarely goes all the way across the fell line. And there are ways to get ongoing help at no cost on Wednesdays.


    The class is for all levels ... any level. I am very used to teaching  multiple levels and at whatever level a weaver is weaving. My goal in every workshop is helping a weaver advance and acquire the skills that they need to weave and design their own narrative and pictorial tapestry. But most of all to do their own thing and love what they are doing and create their story, their narrative.


    There is an additional $25 supply fee, payable to the instructor on the first day of class, which includes all the materials that the student will need, including paper for cartoons, and yarn for warp and weft. Kathe will bring small copper pipe looms for students to use with option to purchase. Or, you may bring your own tensioned loom (copper looms, Mirrix looms).

    What to Bring:

    • $25 supply fee
    • Drink and snacks
    • Cushions as needed
    • Camera or phone for pictures
    • Note taking materials-something to create a weaving journal
    • Basic design tools, whatever you like, pencils, colored pencils.
    • Basic weaving tools from home. Kathe will also bring tools for you to try, see what you like.
    • Optional: Bring a small tensioned loom to weave 3"x4" tapestry, or use one of Kathe's copper pipe looms.

    Wear comfortable clothing.

    Instructor Bio

    Kathe Todd-Hooker is an award-winning narrative tapestry weaver, dinosaur, instructor of tapestry and related arts since 1981, writer, author, NW native, an ardent student of myth and symbolism that seeps into her imagery. She has studied Gobelin, Swedish, British, Coptic, Middle Eastern and kesa, a tech nerd who specializes in synthesizing the techniques to solve technical and design problems in tapestry.

    Join us for An Introduction to Weaving with Silk

    A Presentation by Joan Namkoong

    The most luxurious of fibers, silk can be a weaver’s best friend when you’re thinking about scarves, shawls and fabric for clothing. There’s lustrous, silky silk and nubby, textural silk and a variety of sizes to use in hand weaving. Learn about silk and its properties, how to handle it and use it on your loom – it’s easier than you think! A two hour lecture class, no weaving experience required.






    Instructor Bio

    Joan Namkoong is a 30 year plus weaver who lives on the Big Island. She weaves and sells functional textiles like scarves, shawls, towels, rugs, runners and yardage for household use. Silk is her favorite thread followed by cotton. Plain weave is used most of the time on her 8- shaft Gilmore loom. She also uses a drawloom to weave complex images and patterns.

    Join us for The Botanical Dyeing Adventure with Ghislaine Chock.

    Discover colors from plants and insects, and create a new palette, by intention or chance, using natural dyes. Dye your own yarns of cotton or wool for knitting or weaving projects, or fat quarters of cotton for quilting projects. Sustainability for a cloth-fiber dyer means using local, and sometimes not so local, materials to produce colors free of unfriendly chemical compounds.

    During this 3-session class, we will treat your cellulose and protein fibers properly, with tannin and mordants, prior to dyeing with a variety of different botanical sources. We will explore possible values created with a selection of plants, and even an insect such as cochineal. 

    There will be an additional supply fee of $30 payable to the instructor on the day of class. The supply fee includes tannins, mordants, botanical dyes and cotton fat quarters.

    What to Bring:

    • $30 supply fee
    • Skeins of yarn made out of cellulose or protein fibers
    • Gloves for dyeing
    • 2-3 large buckets

    Join us for Intro to Pysanky Egg Writing with Sara Ricer

    Pysanky is a unique egg-decorating style which originated within Slavic cultures dating back to the pre-Christian era. Literally meaning "to write," the pysanky process (similar to batik fabric dyeing) involves drawing lines of wax to mask layers of color on eggs, which can result in intricate detailed designs and patterns.

    This class will be an introduction to pysanky, where participants will learn some basic techniques and create simple multi-color designs on the interesting canvas of an egg. No experience required.

    There will be a $20 supply fee, for kistka (hot-wax pen), beeswax, and dye, payable to the instructor on the day of class.

    What to bring:

    • $20 supply fee
    • Please bring some eggs/eggshells. (Chicken eggs from the grocery store are fine.) If your eggs have not been emptied, please make sure they are raw unboiled eggs.
    • Wear clothing appropriate for working with wax and dye.
    • Latex gloves if desired 

    Instructor Bio

    Sara Ricer - I think art should be accessible to everyone. My number one wish is that every person finds some way to create for the sake of creating. When creating, I like to give my pieces a little bit of whimsy and imagination, while still being functional. I like the idea that art can be carried around in your pocket. I like the idea that no space is too small for a little bit of imagination.

    Join us for Making a Market Basket with Lynn Martin Graton.

    In this class, Lynn will show you how to make a sturdy basket that can be used for everything from carrying your weaving supplies, to shopping at your local farmers market, to trips to the library.

On the second day, students will complete the body of the basket and finish the top with a lashed rim. The basket will be finished by inserting a wraparound handle of Shaker tape. Ways to "seal" the basket after taking it home will be discussed.  Students will receive some notes on making another basket and a list of suppliers where they can order reed and Shaker tape.   




    There will be an additional $50 supply fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class which includes: rattan reed and shaker tape for handle.

    What to Bring:

    • $50 supply fee
