NEW FOR JUNE
TWO BRAND NEW CLASSES
LEARN TO WEAVE II: ROUND WEAVING
WED, JUNE 9
Beginner’s Weaving, just like Tapestry, but weaving in the round. Students will learn how to learn how to warp a round loom and weave for texture, while exploring a variety of different materials to create color and texture. We’ll be using bulky lofty materials that work up quickly, including yarn, raw wool roving and even mac cord so you can warp, weave and finish in one sitting.
WOVEN ROPE BASKET
THURS, JUNE 10
A new take on weaving...weaving, but make it useful!
We’re marrying form and function by making a lovely rope bowl using basic warp and weft and twining techniques. Firm enough to hold its shape, and soft with neutral tones and light capturing texture, it’s a super simple project for beginners who have no weaving knowledge that yields an elegant result.
SHOP IN STUDIO
Gotland sheep have been bred for centuries in Sweden as a dual purpose breed, having been brought to isle of Gotland by Viking seafarers. I am proud to offer a variety of American bred Gotland Sheep Pelts. Each is unique, and individual prices vary depending on size, staple length and weight. Prices range from $175 starting, up to $500. All are products of yearling lamb, in an way to honor the animal by ensuring that all parts are valued and used, as opposed to mass market produced pelts. Some are suitable for garment piece work, and all are luscious and make perfect gifts. Shop the only Authentic Gotland pelts available in Western New York.
Garment Grade tanning work and machine washable for easy care. #communicate to ask for photos of the stock for sale or to arrange a private shop in the studio on Elm.
