Weaving class begins 1/31/08 in Richmond, VA

27 01 2008



I have posted the pictures of the beautiful Weave in a Weekend projects as they came off the looms. The students got wonderful results. As we finished up our class, the Scholastic Art Competition awards were underway. We had a very busy bustling art center. It was such a blessing to see that wonderful art center being used to encourage young artists to expand their gift, refine it and grow into it.
We have a weaving class starting on Thursday. This is in Richmond,VA. I have openings and you should sign up today. We meet from 6:30 pm – 9 pm. We work on Floor looms and have a great time. You are welcome, no matter what your level of skill is. Beginners are fine. Intermediate are fine, returning weavers are fine. I take you where you are, instruct you, coach you, and help you find your direction in weaving and the fiber arts. Please join this very stimulating class.
Here are a few more pictures of the most recent students and their work:





Weave in a Weekend – Finished work

learn to weave in a weekend

26 01 2008




MMMMM, What fun this is. My students at Visarts are working diligently this weekend to learn to weave. This group of students (only 3 of them) are the most insightful first time weavers I have encountered before. I wish it were possible for all of them to continue in this endeavor. Unfortunately, life does not always grant our wishes. Here are pictures of their works in progress.
Thanks to all of you for you interest in my blog and my work and students.

I got to turn a bowl today! I went to Barbara Dill’s wood studio and she taught me to use a lathe. Together, we turned this bowl. I loved it, and encourage you to try it. If not wood turning, if you have a desire to try your hand at an art/craft form hitherto foreign to you, go for it!
If you are interested in taking class with Barbara, e-mail me and I’ll pass your request on. Or check out her site:

hatfelting class pics

19 01 2008






Here are some pictures of the hats produced in my hatfelting class today. I offer these workshops privately also. You can book one for 3 or 4 people and we will have the workshop out here in Goochland. They are wonderful fun for friends or family to take together.





Glen Allen work and Felting workshop

18 01 2008

Here are pics of some of the work going on at Glen Allen. The multi-color, highly textured piece is a set of place mats that I am weaving. The taupe and burgundy is Nancy’s. She has done 2 or 3 scarves out of that, and these pics are just to show how pretty the weave and fiber are. She is weaving off the loom waste. The fiber is tencel.
The chenille piece is also taupe, and has beads woven in. This is Julie’s work.
She is truly a ‘natural’ fiber artist.



Tomorrow I have a hatfelting workshop at The Visual Art Center of Richmond. I’ll try to remember to take the camera and upload pics afterward. It’s a busy weekend, so I may not get it done until sometime during the week.
Take care.
