Class Description:

Learn how to weave on a floor loom. Participants will create 2 long narrow warps that will become a scarf, table runner, or wall hanging. Students will explore freestyle techniques in this workshop that embraces "mistakes" as design elements so that weaving can be playful and experimental using colors and textures to create something totally unique. Instruction will take place on two full day successive Fridays with an optional two hours of support between. Students are welcome to use the studio on their own and will have a month use of the LPCA loom to complete their weavings.

About the Teacher:

Suzanne enjoys creating something totally unique by experimenting with the surface. Her handwoven pieces are like paintings; the warped loom becomes her canvas where she plays with different colors, textures, and fibers to create something special - something she could never be reproduced by a machine - human, warm, and vibrant.

A retired teacher, Suzanne has been weaving for 42 years. She and her husband Bob and their Sheepadoodle Kaz live in Wilmington Island outside of Savannah, GA from September to May while summers are spent living on their sailboat on Lake Champlain in upstate New York where Suzy creates her fiber art.
