A020W22 Weaving Explorations I / 9/24-10/1, Noon - 2 p.m.
Instructor: Madie Ley
Skill level: ALL

Join us as we experiment with color, texture and pattern in small-scale weavings. Using a simple frame loom, learn how to warp a loom and prepare weft yarn for weaving. The majority of class time will be devoted to weaving with yarn --from cotton to wool to acrylic-blends --representing a rainbow of colors. Once you understand the basics of weaving, you will expand your weaving know-how with techniques to add texture and pattern. You'll even learn finishing techniques for creating a woven wall-hanging. This multigenerational class is open to artists who have never woven before as well as those with previous experience weaving.

Enrollment limited to 12.
Multigenerational class for ages 10 to adult.

Multigenerational: Indicates a workshop that welcomes students from a larger age range (see class description for age range).

A025W22 Monster Soft Sculptures / 10/29, Noon - 2 p.m.
Instructor: Jenny Stice

In this multigenerational class, dream up a monster that can be spooky or silly. First, sketch your monster's features and body to create a fabric pattern. Choose from a rainbow of felt colors for the body of your monster, and play with fiber embellishments that will give your monster character, such as fabric scraps, embroidery floss, ribbons and more. You will get a demonstration of hand-sewing basics to piece together your pattern pieces, and leave class with enough embroidery floss or yarn to complete your monster's stitching at home.

Enrollment limited to 12.
