Work with noted Pacific Northwest Fiber Artist Mandy Greer in her gorgeous light-filled studio, making your very own woven wall hanging, learning the basics and more stitches of tapestry weaving in her own unique style, on handmade table looms with heddle bar, using a huge collection of luxurious boutique, handspun and hand-dyed yarns and up-cycled fabric. This style is great for beginners and fiber enthusiasts alike! It's meditative and also stimulating! You'll take home a totally unique piece of modern home decor. Relax by the fire on cool days and out on my deck in the trees on warm days -- sip tea, nosh on tasty treats, chat with new friends, and meet a Seattle-based artist in her studio in a happening, creative neighborhood, easy to get to on the Light Rail. With plenty to do in Columbia City in walking distance after the class, make a whole day of it, with parks, cafes, coffee and bakeries! If you have 3 or more people, and don't see a date you can do, check in with me about scheduling one on a day/time you can do! Please bring a lunch if you need to. You are welcome to eat! The studio is shoes-off, so bring socks or slippers if you can. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before class so we can meet and get started on time! http://mandygreer.org/
