OPTION #1: OPEN STUDIO TIME - You will pay for up to four (4) months in advance. For that one tuition payment, you will have the opportunity to use the studio for as many hours as desired during open studio hours. During the 30 plus scheduled open studio hours per week, I will be available to teach and help you as needed. You can use the library, the computer to design your next project, pick my brain, weave, or just visit with your weaving buddies - whatever you desire. Individualized instruction geared to your interests and level (beginner through intermediate) on either eight-shaft, four-shaft, or rigid heddle looms will be available. There will be no need to sign up for any particular time - just show up when it's convenient for you. Loom use is included in tuition cost.

OPTION #2: WEEKLY LESSONS - You may sign up for one day a week, for either a 2, 2.5 or 3 hour lesson time for ten consecutive weeks. With this option you can attend only on the day and time slot you choose; there will be no exchanges or makeup lessons or refunds for missed lessons. At the end of the 10 weeks, if the project is not completed, then you will have the option of (a) signing up for another 10 weeks; (b) renting the loom (by the month) and finishing the project on your own or (c) purchasing additional lesson time on a pay as you go basis Last week to begin Weekly Lessons is the week of October 7, 2014.

OPTION #3: PAY AS YOU GO - In Option #3 you rent the table loom, paid in advance (floor looms are not available for rental) and pay for just the days you come to the weaving studio. In this option, you will pay that day for the number of hours you attend (2 hour minimum). Please remember your checkbook as no invoicing will be available.

The increased cost of freight (shipping) has forced the studio to revise its discount policy. Yarns and books will be sold at a 20% discount. Looms and weaving accessories will be sold at a 10 - 15% discount.

Special workshops taught by other teachers will occasionally be scheduled (for additional registration fees) to expand your knowledge of weaving theory.

Children's classes are also available.

Effective dates: January 1 - December 31, 2014

Option #3 provides ad hoc access to the studio whenever it is open. Loom rental is required unless you have your own loom.
