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 35 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.
DETAILS: includes use of loom - May come as often as you would like during the hours the Studio is Open from September 1- December 31. Choose the number of months that you would like to study. You may choose to pay by the month at the monthly fee each month. 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 purchase the materials.
COST - 4 Consecutive Months $460.00 plus materials
3 Consecutive Months $360.00 plus materials

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.

weave and learn whenever the studio is open,
plus loom use is included.

constraints on which days you are available to come to the studio;
loom use is included.
