Frame Loom Weaving (Tapestry) Sat 6/15/19 | 10:00 AM – 3:30 PM
Using a permanent shape, tapestry techniques and a variety of yarns and other materials, we will create on a frame loom. This is a traditional type of weaving with not-necessarily traditional materials. Register for the one-day workshop here, on the Sawtooth website.
Intro to Weaving

Jump on the loom, thread and weave! This is a quick intro class to weave a scarf, pillow or short runner. Pre-register early so we have your threads ready to go!
Batik August 3, 10-3:30
Using a soy wax resist, explore patterns, images and colorful dyes. Register for the one day workshop on the Sawtooth Website.
Light Summer Shawl
Using cottons, linen, sparkly rayon and texture, make an easy-breezy wrap for yourself for traveling, on breezy evenings or to cover up from too much sunshine! Register for the classes on the Sawtooth website
Slow Stitches and Dyeing
Combine images, textures and color for composition in threads and fabrics. Friday evening we will stitch to resist and make patterns and dye our pieces. Saturday we will use them, try some other stitch patterns and put together a composition. We have lots of examples to work with- stitch portraits, some mending stitches, embroidery stitches, adding found materials and embellishments, too. Register for this class on the Sawtooth website
More to come! and images of the projects to come, too.
