Beginning Weaving – Feb. 15
Have you ever thought about learning the beautiful art of weaving? Well now is your chance! Weaving is interlacing threads to make a fabric. This class will cover all the basics and show you how fun weaving can be. Equipment and materials are provided.
Students will warp (put the threads on the loom) three times while weaving two samplers and a project of their design. They will also learn about plain weave and twills, methods of threading the loom, reading drafts, and designing a project. Table looms (portable) will be used for weaving. All the instruction can be applied directly to the larger floor looms. Students are encouraged to take advantage of open studio time (see below) to practice their new weaving skills.
This class will give students the foundation needed to continue weaving on their own, and the knowledge required for the intermediate weaving classes. Looms are available for rent to help students continue their weaving experience and practice their new creative skill.

"I want to see this department and the Pioneer Craft House continue to be an art center to be proud of and to continue the traditions begun by Glenn J. Beeley and Mary M. Atwater over 60 years ago."
Deanna fell in love with the art of weaving the first time she saw it, and has been weaving and teaching for over 30 years. She has taught at Three Wishes Fiber Arts, Needlepoint Joint, The University of Utah and in her home studio, among other places. She keeps her knowledge up to date and her outlook fresh by studying with both national and international masters.
She reports that the women who started Pioneer Craft House, Glenn Beeley and Mary Atwater were both weavers, and Mrs. Beeley's loom is still in service in the weaving studio. PCH has the ability to provide instruction and work space for people to learn and advance their craft in a safe environment.
