2012 Weaving Class Calendar

OK! Autumn is really here and we've been working hard to develop our curriculum. Here's the new schedule for our 2012 Weaving Class Calendar. We're trying something a bit different beginning in January - “Theme Weeks” - so that students can choose from a wider range of topics in any given week. We will offer these theme weeks two weeks out of the month and the beginning and intermediate classes on the other two weeks.

And just know that while we always set a date for each theme, mostly because we've found that it helps people to organize their own schedule and a commitment to attending, we can be flexible about it. For instance, if the course you wanted to take is posted for a certain week, but you can't attend during that week, you can schedule the course you want to take for a week that you can attend. We always try to accommodate your scheduling needs.

I've also installed a link to this schedule in the sidebar so that students can refer to this throughout the year without having to dig through the archives to find it. If you have any questions, please comment, call us, or send us an email.
