It’s not often we can have two weaving classes in session at once, but this past week it worked perfectly to have Ruth Manning’s Tapestry Weaving class and Nancy Frantz’s beginning table loom weavers here at the same time.
The tapestry weavers did some outdoor sketching as one means of design inspiration for their woven landscapes. How exciting to see these small gems be revealed, row by row.
Ruth’s own samples along with what the students were working garnered many “oohs” and “ahs”.
A visit between classes had one group of weavers impressed with what each were doing in just three or four days of class time.
To learn the basics of weaving and complete a project in that time frame can only be done with helpful, patient and knowledgeable instructors like Nancy and Ruth.
If weaving times two is good, how about weaving times six? There are six more weaving classes at Sievers through the end of our season: Weaving the Rainbow with Judith Yamamoto, Advanced Inkle Weaving Techniques with Daryl Lancaster, Honeycomb & Waffle Weave with Nancy Adams, Loom-Structured Lace with Rita Hagenbruch, Summer & Winter Weave with Lynn Schuster and Rag Rug Weaving with Deb Sharpee.
We like that kind of math!Share Sievers with Friends...
