The Master Weaver Program is consists of five progressive levels of classroom and independent study involving skill development, research studies and project assignments. It provides an educational environment in which an individual can acquire the skill to become an independent weaver.
Each level includes 5 consecutive days (30 hours) of a face-to-face workshop, followed by 100-150 hours of independent study on homework assignments. The face-to-face workshops take place annually at our Fibre Week event, and the homework assignments are due a year after the workshop is completed. This allows students then enrol in the next level at the next Fibre Week.
For a complete guide to the Master Weaver Program, please see the Master Weaver Policies.
Beginning Weaving: If you have never had any weaving experience, but are interested in exploring the art, we offer a Beginning Weaving workshop during Fibre Week. Please see our Workshops section of Fibre Week for more information.
Master Weaver Level 1: Students should be experienced weavers, and are expected to be able to warp a loom independently at the outset of the class, and be conversant with basic weaving language and tools. Independent weaving experience is essential. Bring your own loom and equipment if possible.
Levels 2-5 require the previous Level's class and homework to be completed. Each level builds off of the previous skill developments.
