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.
PLEASE BE SURE TO BOOK YOUR WORKSHOP DIRECTLY WITH DAHLIA. EITHER BY SIGNING UP BELOW OR CALLING THE GALLERY DIRECTLY AT 617-527-4456.
Private lessons are available on an hourly basis. These can cover a wide array of subjects, including designing, making the warp, dressing a 4 harness loom, and an exploration of a variety of weave structures. These lessons are arranged directly with Dahlia.
We are now offering Zoom lessons
I offer one on one virtual lessons on a 15” Cricket rigid heddle loom. The loom is shipped to you from my studio, already warped, with a scarf that I will design for you to weave based on colors that you prefer.
Once you’ve received the loom, the first class will be geared towards learning to weave, terminology, and learning about a variety of yarn choices. After you have learned to weave and finish your scarf, you will learn about how to choose yarns for future projects, and resources for weaving yarns. This includes calculating how much yarn you need for a particular project, and making good decisions in order to achieve success and confidence with the medium. You will then learn how to make and dress the the Cricket 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 program includes the following:
Class #1: Learning to Weave
Class #2: Finishing your weaving
Class #3: Warping the loom
The total cost of this package is $515, which includes a warped and ready to use assembled 15” Cricket Loom, weft to weave your first project, all the accessories that come with the loom, including 2 stick shuttles, 2 clamps, one peg, a booklet, 2 skeins of worsted yarn, and a separate boat shuttle with 6 bobbins.
