If you’ve always wanted to try batik but were afraid and overwhelmed, this is the class for you. Soy wax, which was originally developed to make candles, makes the job of batiking much easier. There are no unhealthy fumes to worry about exhausting. The melting point of soy wax is much cooler than traditional batik wax, so the risk of fire is very small. Also, soy wax is water-soluble! So removing the wax from your cloth is as easy as ironing and washing it out in your own sink or washing machine. And because we won’t be using dyes there Sign Up For Class »
This class will start at the beginning with an introduction into how to dress the loom for weaving. Learn to thread the loom, slay the reed and tie onto the front beam in the first class. Once that is done, learn to read simple weaving patterns. You'll take the loom home with you to weave 39 different patterns for a wonderful twill sampler. A material charge will apply.

Felting: Class -Felt Nuno Scarf 1 session, $75 + $30 materials fee; Skill Level - Beginner thru Advanced
Using Nuno felting techniques, be prepared to be elated as you transform layers of hand-painted silk, wool roving and silk embellishments into gorgeous flowing fabric. During the felting process, the wool fibers migrate through the weave of the silk and entangle, pulling the silk and any other embellishments along with them as they shrink. This results in an incredibly lightweight garment that drapes the body beautifully. In this half-day workshop we will cover design, layout, felting and fulling, creating your own art-to-wear. Beginner friendly. Students should bring along two old bath towels. Price includes a $30 materials fee
