Geometric Weaving on a Frame Loom

In this four week class, students will learn the fundamentals of designing and creating a weaving from start to finish. Instruction will include designing your weaving, preparing your warp and weft, proper weaving technique, exploring color blending and line patterns, and creating geometric shapes. Students will have the freedom to choose what type of weaving they would like to complete, and will receive instruction on best practices to create each piece.

Other topics covered will include controlling the selvages, finishing loose ends, and removing your weaving from the loom for display. Materials provided along with the use of a frame loom. La profesora habla algo de español.

Artist / Instructor

Amy Hamley is a ceramic and fiber artist based in Sonoma, California. Driven by a dedication to traditional processes and material exploration, her work focuses on the possibilities and unlikely pairings of fiber and clay. Her teaching style aims to encourage students to approach materials with curiosity over fear, to simplify the testing process, and to help students achieve the results they hope for in developing their work.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
