Take a Class with Jane!

June 12, 2015

Jane Patrick, our Creative Director, author, and teacher, will be found this summer at several conferences, as well as this fall at Mendocino Art Center. Summer conferences are not only fun, they’re a great way to intensify your learning.

June 15-21 Midwest Weaver’s Conference in Minneapolis. Jane will be teaching at the pre-conference workshops, June 15-17. Jane’s class, “I can do THAT? Techniques for the rigid heddle loom”, will explore the vast possibilities of the rigid heddle loom with a focus on designing stunning fabrics.

July 9-12 New England Weaver’s Seminar in Northampton, Massachusetts. NEWS is solely focused on weaving, from beginner to advanced techniques. Jane will be teaching a one-day workshop, Weave a Scarf in a Day which is essentially a beginner class that teaches all of the steps in weaving. Jane will also be teaching pick-up for the rigid heddle loom and finger-controlled techniques (which can be done on either a floor loom or a rigid heddle loom). Jane will also be giving the keynote address.

July 23-26 Intermountain Weaver’s Conference in Durango, Colorado. Jane will be found back in her home state in beautiful, historic Durango. The theme of this conference is “try something new”. With that in mind Jane is teaching beginning inkle weaving, weave a scarf in a day (beginning rigid heddle weaving), as well as pick-up for the rigid heddle loom and finger-controlled techniques.

November 14-15. Mendocino Art Center in Mendocino, California. Join Jane in the lovely Mendocino surroundings for two days of rigid heddle weaving. One day is devoted to pick-up on the rigid heddle loom and the other day will focus on finger-control techniques.Jane Patrick has been weaving for over 40 years. She is a past editor of Handwoven magazine and is the author of Time to Weave, The Weaver’s Idea Book, Woven Scarves (co-authored with Stephanie Flynn Sokolov), and Simple Woven Garments (co-authored with Sara Goldenberg).
