Weaving Studio in the Louise Pitman Fiber Arts Building

The Weaving Studio has a spacious, well-lit home in a part of the Pitman Fiber Arts Building. Numerous looms, warping boards, a yarn closet, a well-stocked supply closet, washing machine and dryer, and a reading library provide the perfect environment most weavers never want to leave. Occasionally, other types of classes will be assigned to this space when there’s no weaving class, especially ones that benefit from the large expanse of tables and workspace in the front of the studio.
