Classes & Workshops

Classes at HanDen Studios Weaving

HanDen Studios Weaving does not offer “beginning” or “advanced” classes. For your first lesson at our studio, the loom will already be prepared for you. For your next class, you may choose to continue on that, or learn how to warp a loom.

We teach this way because one of the pillars of freestyle weaving is that “we learn together as a group.” This style of teaching allows both beginners and veterans at the loom to weave together as equals, able to share inspiration, creativity, and technique. How much you learn and how fast you learn it are up to the individual. There is no right or wrong way to learn.

Regular Tuesday Classes

We offer freestyle weaving classes every Tuesday (except when the studio is closed for holidays or events which require travel). These classes are taught in 2.5-hour blocks, with 2 hours dedicated to weaving and an extra ½ hour for students to set up their looms at the beginning of class and remove the inside sets at the end of class.

Class Times:
  • Tuesday Afternoons: 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Cost:
  • $30 per 2.5-hour class
  • Includes all materials (excluding silks and cashmere)

Bundle & Save: Book 4 classes and get a 5th class for free!*

Workshop & Special Technique Classes

Specialty workshops are scheduled on select Saturdays when the studio is open. Workshops usually start at 10:00 am, and most run anywhere from 6-8 hours. Workshop topics range from warping, dyeing, sewing garments with w fabric, and many others!

Cost:
  • Varies

Multi-Day Intensive Classes

If you live too far away to make regular class visits, or if you want an immersive multi-day freestyle weaving experience, a Multi-Day Intensive is the answer for you! Multi-Day Intensives can be scheduled for a minimum of 2 days and include morning, afternoon, and evening weaving sessions.

I am often asked if beginners can take an Intensive class, to which I answer, “Of course!” Since there are no “beginner” or “advanced” classes at HanDen Studios Weaving, our classes are open to students of any skill or experience level. New students may opt to start with a Multi-Day Intensive (especially if they are not local to Tyrone, GA), and then come back for other classes or additional Multi-Day Intensives.

Cost:
  • $150 per student per day
  • Includes all materials (excluding silks and cashmere)
