Studio construction is complete, and now it is time to settle in and get back to business. Fall is around corner and you know that cooler weather and shorter days means it is the beginning of weaving season.
I will be available for lessons/workshops Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I can be available for a few Saturday workshops this fall as well. Please contact me (406-640-1651) to set up a session for you and your friends. I teach in my studio small groups, up to four students, but I can also make arrangements to make use of a larger space in Uptown Butte for larger groups when needed.
The cost of individual lessons is $25 per hour if you are providing your own loom and materials.
If you are taking a “Weave with me” workshop, cost is $55, Workshops are 4 hours long and include instruction time and weaving time. You will have access to a warped 8 shaft table loom, and materials to complete a project.
Pre-warped 8 Shaft table looms can be rented for $25 per session. Looms stay in the studio at the end of the session.
I am also open for a weaver to bring their tableloom, or foldable wolf pup and be a visiting weaver in the studio for a few hours. If you need no instruction but just want the company of another weaver, what I ask you to do is give me a call so I can be sure I have a space ready for you.
I can also help you diagnose what is happening with your loom or your project. I do not offer repair services as I do not have a wood shop, but I do have a reasonable tool kit to make minor adjustments as needed.
My fun for the fall will to be set up my looms for holiday projects starting in October, I will let you know what projects are available on the looms and you can schedule your visit to make your handmade presents for the family this year.
Here is my invitation: Come and “Weave with me” this fall.
Studio has easy access from I90 and I15. Located on South Montana St.
If you want to book a multi day session we can accommodate you. There is a Discovery KOA around the corner in the summer, several nice hotels with in a mile, and if you were into private guest rooms we have a modest one of those as well. Our goal is to have you enjoy your stay and have a pleasurable weaving experience.
