Rigid Heddle Weaving Class in March

29 02 2008




This is just to put the information out there that I am offering a rigid heddle weaving class in March. It’s on Sat. March 15.
If you are interested, e-mail me, and we will decide which date to offer it, or will offer it both dates.
I have done the class in 4 hours , and I have done the class in 6 hours, so the length of time it takes is up to the participants.
You should count on about 5-6 hours and cost is $15.00/hr/person. I will offer it for 3 people min at that price, and a max of 4 people. I’m teaching the class in Glen Allen, Va. The zip is 23060 if you want to see if you are anywhere close.
If you have your own loom, that’s fine, if you choose to use mine, you will sign a contract, pay $10.00 rental, and return it within 3 weeks, or of course, you can buy it.
If you want private lessons on using the rigid heddle loom, you can book me at an hourly rate of $35.00. It’s a great low budget way to break into weaving.

What’s going on right now

27 02 2008

I haven’t had a lot of reason to post lately. I’ve wanted to be home with my son, as he prepares for his deployment. He is a marine. I also had the atarah to do for another serviceman. Now, my son wants a tallit also. He wants his to have his favorite scripture on the atarah in Arabic. Philipians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me”.

I’m also writing proposals for the upcoming summer and fall seasons. One of the art centers I teach at finished booking for fall/winter ’08 2 weeks ago! Good Job. This summer, I will be offering a Learn to weave in a week class at the Visual Art Center of Richmond – http://www.visarts.org
I will be teaching “The Serenity of Spinning” at Brookfield in Connecticut, A week of felting at Visarts, 3 weeks of youth classes at Visarts, a week of “The Serenity of Spinning” at Touchstone in Farmington, PA in July, a Learn to Weave in a Weekend class at Visarts in June, Rigid Heddle Weaving in July – Visarts, Tapestry Weaving in Aug – Visarts and back in Connecticut in August for a Felting Intensive. That’s a weeklong class of full days of wetfelting! That one is gonna be FUN!
Touchstone, in Farmington, PA is a residential craft school, and I hope you will join me there. I will be teaching good spinning technique, and finding your rhythms with the wheel.

As I mentioned, my son’s deployment is imminent. I have seen him for the last time for about a year. Already I miss him.
I’m talking to a potential client about weaving a couple of organic plant fiber tallitot. We’ve talked about organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo. We looked into ingeo and soysilk as well as tencel also. Embarking on a new tallit commission is always a joy.
Let me peek and see if I have any new pics>>>>>>Oh, here are the kids in the after school program at their looms and with their work. They are sweet, sweet people.

Camel Hair Tallit

11 02 2008

Just had a request from a lady about another tallit contract.
It seemed like a good opportunity to mention that I do weave tallit from cashmere, camel hair, alpaca, silk, as well as other exotics and luxury fibers.
http://www.cherrihankins.com is the place to begin looking
I also have
http://custom-tallit.tripod.com
http://tallitot.tripod.tripod.com
http://tallitweaver.tripod.com
This will provide several opportunities for viewing my tallit and prices.
I hand-weave tallitot, and if the client requests it, hand-spun the yarns also.
More later.
