LESSONS

OPEN STUDIO

Students  will have the opportunity to use the studio

for as many hours as desired during open studio hours. 

I will provide assistance as I am available. You can

use the library, the computer to design your next

project, pick my brain, weave, or just visit with your weaving buddies - as you desire. Individualized

instruction geared to your interests and level (beginner through intermediate) on

any of the looms will be available. There will be no

need to sign up for any particular time - just show up when it is convenient for you. You will pay for up to

four (4) months in advance. At the end of the month(s),

if the project is not completed, then you will have the option of purchasing additional lesson time by the month(s) at the number of month(s) fee; or removing

the unfinished project from the loom and purchasing

the materials. Theory/lectures are at an additional cost.
