The goal of Open Studio is for students to work freely on their own projects within a flexible schedule. Open Studio is open to students that have completed Wheel 1 or Handbuilding. During these hours students may come in and work. This is not a led class, but more of a working studio where questions can be addressed to instructors and peers. We hope to create an environment where students can experiment and get creative while having a community of support!

Looking for a new hobby or a special gift? Try using a rigid heddle loom to weave a beautiful scarf. With the loom prewarped by the instructor, you'll be able to start your project straight away. Looms are provided, but if you have your own and want to learn how to use it, bring it to the first class. The instructor will reach out to class members about a week before the class to discuss yarn and color options. Plan on bringing around 500 yards of yarn to ensure you have enough to complete your scarf.
