CLASS POLICIES

In order to secure your spot in a class, payment is required at the time of reservation. Because we prefer to keep our classes small and often cap classes at 4-6 students, no-shows and last minute cancellations will not be refunded. We value our instructor’s time, and want to make sure they are compensated fairly for the work they do.  Should you want to take this class at a future date, you will need to pay again.

Tuition will be refunded if the class is cancelled by Woven Art due to low enrollment, or if there is a waiting list and your spot can be filled. If you cancel within three days of the first class meeting, we will refund your class fee. In either of these cases, we are also happy to apply your class fee to a future class if you prefer.

Thank you for buying your supplies at Woven Art. While we do not require that class supplies come from us, your support keeps us in business.

In the event of inclement weather, Woven Art *may* cancel or reschedule a class - we will post shop/class closures on our Facebook page and make every effort to reach our students.  If you feel that it is not safe to travel to the shop, please call us.


Knitting Classes


KNIT 101

ON HIATUS, PLEASE STAND BY
COST: $50

This class starts every week - and you can go at your own pace! Designed to teach you the basic skills you need for most projects, this class is ALWAYS enrolling. Topics covered include casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, stitch combinations, increasing, decreasing, starting a project in the round, and using double pointed needles. The classes are technique-based, rather than project-based, though you will have a basic hat after the last session.   You may come to any or all of these sessions, until you have attended 5 classes. Different instructors teach at the different times, but the outlines remain the same.  When you come to class you say "I need session one" or "I need session two." Please call 517-203-4467 at least one day ahead to let us know you will be attending.


Supplies: two skeins Shepherds Wool worsted or Malabrigo Rios. US size 8 circular needles - 16" or 20". One set size 8 double-pointed needles.

Class fee includes outlines of all the classes, simple projects for your new skills and five class sessions (10 hours of instruction).


KNITTING / CROCHET HELP

ON HIATUS, PLEASE STAND BY.
COST: $15 PER SESSION OR A $40 PUNCH CARD FOR 4 SESSIONS

This class is great for knitters and crocheters who need help for an hour or two, but not constant supervision. (We recommend private lessons for those type of problems!) Need help picking up stitches for a neckline? Or don’t understand instructions for “At the same time”? This class can be great for you. Please note: these classes tend to have 4-6 students in them. Please call 24 hours in advance to sign up for a spot.

We are happy to help you with 10-15 minutes of free help on a project. If you don’t know whether you need a class or a stop-in, just call us!


The following knitting class session will take place online via Zoom at the appointed times only, and will not be recorded. The online instruction will consist of two windows: one with the instructor, and one with on-camera close-ups for demonstration purposes. Each student will also be viewable in a window. The student will be responsible for using Zoom (super easy by clicking on a link provided by the instructor via email) on an electronic device that is large enough for the instructor window and demonstration window to be clearly viewed by the student.

COST: $70 WITH LOOM RENTAL, $55 WITHOUT LOOM RENTAL

The Rigid Heddle loom is easy to set up and use - and it is light weight and portable. You will be amazed what you can make on this very simple loom. In this class you will learn how to warp the loom and how to weave a beautiful scarf, in yarns of your choosing. This class is limited to 4 students, so that every student has plenty of time with the instructor.
 
Supplies: You will need about 200 yards of a Malabrigo Rios for warp, and 200 yards of Malabrigo Rios for weft. We will discuss yarns appropriate for weaving in class. Also bring scissors, a tapestry needle and a brown paper grocery bag that can be cut to use when winding warp onto the loom. Bring scissors.
 

You Need an 8-dent heddle and warping equipment if bringing your own loom.

*Please arrive at 8:30 am if you need to purchase yarn, wind yarn, or are bringing your own loom. Class will start at 9:00 am. We will take a 30 minute break for lunch.  Feel free to bring a lunch, or enjoy take out from one of our local restaurants.
