Know your Weaving Skill Level:
Please evaluate your skill level, not only for your total weaving experience, but also for your experience using the techniques and materials offered in the classes you are considering. If you are trying a new technique it may be best to look for materials that you have used in the past. The same can be said if you are trying new materials but using weaving techniques that you have al-ready mastered.
Beginner (Beg): Beginner students have little or no weaving experience having woven none or only a few baskets. These weavers are learning about basic weaving techniques, such as over/under weaving, start/stop weaving, twining, and rim lashing. They are learning to control shapes. Please give extra consideration when taking a class in a material or technique that you have never used before.
Beginner/Intermediate (Beg/Int): These students have woven beginner baskets, consider themselves still beginners but are ready for more challenges.
Intermediate (Int): Intermediate students are proficient in basic weaving techniques. They do not have difficulty setting up bases, twining, completing over/under weaves and creating rims using the materials offered in a class. They are ready for new weaving techniques.
Advanced (Adv): Advanced students are proficient at beginning and intermediate weaving techniques. Weavers at this level are capable of designing a basket on their own. Students are comfort-able with shaping and more challenging aspects of weaving such as intricate patterns and multiple weaves.
All Levels (All): These classes are offered to students of all skill levels from Beginner to Advanced.
