We are very excited about Sara’s many offerings this year!
This will be our 5th annual summer weaving class. Each year it gets better and better! Come join the fun! If you are a rank beginner, but have always wanted to learn to weave, this class is for you. You will put on a new small warp every morning and weave it off in the afternoon. By the end of the 5 days you will really know how to set up a loom on your own.
Sara Goodman is a textile artist with a studio in Center Harbor, NH. Her work has been featured in Handwoven, Shuttle Spindle and Dyepot, and Upper Valley Life Magazines as well as the Surface Design Journal. Her wearables have been in the Handweavers Guild of America fashion show at Convergence and the Surface Design Association conference. Her one of a kind garments have won awards from Complex Weavers, The New England Weavers Seminar and the Vermont Weaver's Guild. Her work has been featured at Julie's Artisans Gallery in New York, the Cambridge Artists’ Collective in Massachusetts, and Living with Craft at the Sunapee Craft Fair. She is a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen. In 2012, she designed a collection of handwoven carpets, based on her original shibori designs, for Khawachen Inner Asia in Hanover, New Hampshire.
If you have a loom, but haven't woven in years and need a refresher, this class is also for you. If it’s possible for you to transport your loom to class, then you can learn on your own loom. Every loom has its own quirky personality and the class will help you make the best of the equipment you have.
If you are an experienced weaver and want to expand your knowledge to include some new weave structures or kinds of yarn, how to use a warping paddle, how to use a computer for creating pattern drafts, how to read block drafts etc. then this class is also for you. More advanced students can spend the 5 days working on one project, with the support of the instructor. You can communicate with the Instructor, prior to class, about your project, so that you come to class ready to begin. Because this is a small class, the instructor will work with students individually at their level. All necessary weaving equipment and yarn will be provided, though students are welcome to use their own yarn as well.
