You want access to an online community where you can share your weaving adventure with like-minded others. You want to weave from the comfort of your own home. You want access to course updates at no additional charge. All courses include videos and downloadable pdf’s.

In-Person Weaving Classes

You Should Take An In-Person Class If:

You are the kind of student that learns better when surrounded by others that can help and inspire you. You prefer a fast-paced learning environment. You learn better when you have to set time aside to come to class. You like to be able to ask questions as you go. You want to be able to see and feel the weaving samples and books. You are ok with having “homework” between classes. You live near or are willing to travel to the Richmond, VA area.
