Please evaluate your skill level, not only for your total weaving experience, but also for your experience using the techniques offered in the classes you are considering. Remember it is not fair to the instructor or the other students to take a class that you are not ready to handle.
All Levels These classes are offered to students of all skill levels from Beginner to Advanced
Beginner Weavers have little or no weaving experience having woven only a few baskets. They need more practice with basic weaving techniques, bases and shaping. These weavers are becoming proficient in basic weaving techniques, including over/ under weaving, start/stop weaving, twining, and rim lashing. They are learning to control shape and will be introduced to new pattern weaves such as twill, different twining methods, and rim and handle finish variations. Please Note: Additionally, if you consider taking a class in a material you have never used, you will be considered a beginner in that class.
Intermediate weavers Weavers have gained proficiency in weaving techniques. They can begin with ease and have mastered several weaving techniques. They do not have difficulty setting up bases, twining, completing over/under weaves and creating rims using the materials offered in a class.
Advanced weavers Weavers are proficient. They have mastered weaving techniques and are ready to take on more challenging projects. Teachers are confident these students have achieved this skill level when attending class. Basic skills are not reviewed due to time constraints. These weavers can design baskets on their own but require new challenges.
