Dahlia Popovits has been designing and weaving extraordinary clothes and accessories utilizing her award winning handwoven textiles made with finest yarns from around the world, for over 40 years. She is happy to be able to share her knowledge through her upcoming workshops.

Our location in SoWa’s Art & Design District gives us the ability to offer workshops to all levels of weavers. The classes we offer range from those for absolute beginners who may only want a one time experience and enjoy working with their hands, to experienced hand weavers who are interested in learning to use a very portable rigid heddle loom for self expression.

PRIVATE LESSONS

 

 

 

 

Private classes are available on an hourly basis and cover a wide array of subjects, including designing, making the warp, dressing a rigid heddle and 4 harness loom and an exploration of a variety of weave structures. Lessons are arranged directly with Dahlia.

Loom and Virtual Class Gift Package  

One on one virtual classes are now available on a 15” Cricket rigid heddle loom.  The loom is shipped to you from my studio, custom warped, with a scarf that I will design for you to weave based on colors of your choice.  

 

Once you receive the loom, our first meeting will involve learning how to weave, terminology, and the methodology behind making wise yarn decisions. 

After learning to weave and upon finishing your scarf, we will review choosing yarns for future projects and resources for weaving yarns. This includes calculating yarn needs and making smart decisions in order to achieve success and confidence in weaving.

The last meeting will address designing, making and warping the loom, so you will be able to make warps in the future by yourself, and know and understand the complete process from beginning to end.

The total cost of this package is $640, which includes an assembled and warped 15” Cricket Loom, designer quality weft yarn to weave your first project,  2 stick shuttles, 2 clamps, one peg, a booklet, 2 skeins of worsted yarn, and a separate boat shuttle with 6 bobbins to get you weaving.

Pay for a Loom & Class Package.
