Studio closing- temporarily

2 11 2010

Word does seem to have gotten out. Yes, the studio is closing, but the plan is to close from 3/31/2011 and re-open on 4/1/2012. I’m taking a year to cycle 15,000 miles or so around the U.S. including Alaska, and can’t keep the studio open during that time. It’s been so much fun acquiring my equipment, that I want to do it all again upon my return, so what I have is or will be for sale.

The studio needs to continue to pay for itself until the lease is up  at the end of March, so people are viewing, and making deposits on their equipment or buying it and leaving it until the end of  March.

Equipment for sale is as follows (date it can be removed from the studio is in parenthesis):

Residential Arts Centers and Spinning

25 04 2008




This is just a plug for my out of state classes. I have a fun week coming up in Farmington, PA at Touchstone Center for Crafts. Here is a link to the website:
http://www.touchstonecrafts.com
If you think spinning looks peaceful, and want to jump in and find out for yourself, please join us in this class. We will explore wool, learn to draft it, spin it and ply it. Oh, did I mention that we will also dye some of it! Spinning wheels are provided and no experience is necessary! Just come with a desire to learn and an openess to enjoy one another in this class.

It’s time for you to finally get away, and send yourself to Summer Camp;0)
We will thoroughly enjoy the solitude of this wonderful, creative retreat.
If you have questions, please e-mail me at tallitweaver@gmail.com
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Learn to weave in a weekend

3 03 2007

We have an upcoming class to Learn to Weave in a Weekend.
It will be held at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.
Here is the class description:
This is an intense weekend of weaving. Students will dress their looms with mohair yarn and weave off a warm, sensual mohair shawl in a weekend workshop. We will begin with an evening of measuring out our warp. Returning Saturday morning, we will wind the warp onto the loom, and pull through the heddles and reed, preparing for Sunday, the culmination of the weekend, as we weave off a beautiful, lofty mohair shawl.

Materials fee of $30.00 for mohair yarn…..or students provide their own.

Tuition: $100 ($85 members)
Materials fee: $30

Sections:
