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. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.

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


Fit Clinic (group class - one session)

with Sarah Peasley
Sundays, December 19th
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm (1 hour)
$60/person minimum 2 people, maximum 4 people
 
Learn which of your measurements you need to know and how to take them. With Sarah's expert help, you'll fill in your own personal (and confidential) body-measurement chart.
 
Youll also get an eye-opening look at the fashion industrys "standard" sizescategories few of us actually “fit" into—and an explanation of why it’s almost impossible to get a perfect fit from ready-to-wear clothing or garments made directly from purchased patterns. 
 
The information gathered during this information-packed session can be used for choosing a pattern size, altering a garment pattern for a better fit, or designing something from scratch.

Supplies:
flexible tape measure
yardstick or 12” ruler
pencil and eraser
 
Homework:
Wear a close-fitting shirt (better yet—a camisole or tank top), and please wear your "good" bra. Bring a positive attitude and a sense of humor!

Knitting Help with Sarah (private - one person per class)
Sundays  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (1 hour) or 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm (1 hour)
$60
You get to choose what you want to work on. Anything your heart desires! You’ll have a nice long hour of uninterrupted one-on-one time with Sarah Peasley. She’ll sit right by your side, hold your hand (figuratively, not literally), and help you through whatever it is that you need help with. 
You can ask Sarah to: teach you something you want to learn, demonstrate a new trick or technique, decipher a pattern, figure out what you did “wrong”, recommend suitable fiber types and yarn types for your project, help you decide which size to choose, guide you in tweaking a pattern for a better-fitting garment, figure out where the heck you left off when you put that project in that bag way back when, help you read your knitting, hold your hand while you fix a mistake, tell you where to pick up stitches, coach you through some finishing tasks, recite the Kitchener stitch for you, or … (fill in the blank)

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.

RHL.jpg

ON HIATUS, PLEASE STAND BY.


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.
