Online Education has a Whole New Look! Don’t Believe Us? Try a Free Spinning Class!
We’re thrilled to launch our new look in September, with Jennifer Moore’s Doubleweave on a 4-Shaft Loom Online Workshop sponsored by Schacht. State-of-the-art camerawork will bring you not only into the studio, but practically right into the loom itself. Jennifer covers how to wind a double warp and thread your loom for doubleweave before taking you through a sampler that culminates in doubleweave pickup. (Later this year, we’ll have fresh videos from Tom Knisely on designing weaving projects and working with linen.) To celebrate this awesome news, we’re offering this free spinning workshop.
We’re taking you not only into the studio, but also into the heads of the artists and designers. Our new workshops will feature Artist Profiles, where you can learn about the inspiration and ideas that fuel their creativity and illuminate their work.
If you don’t feel like waiting around (or simply don’t believe us), please check out this free spinning workshop from Maggie Casey. A spinner since the early 70s, she holds the Handweavers Guild of America Certificate of Excellence in Handspinning. Bona fides aside, Maggie is a gentle, generous soul with a profound knowledge of and passion for fiber traditions. We spent an entire day in her home, watching her teach the editor of Handwoven how to spin using a drop spindle.
Need more convincing? We’ve included Maggie’s Artist Profile here so you can get a glimpse of our new video style.
