General Studio Support

We humbly request your support for the John C. Campbell Folk School Weaving Studio, housed within the Louise Pitman Fiber Arts Building. With your contributions, we can create an extraordinary haven for weavers, inspiring creativity and nurturing their artistic spirit. The Weaving Studio offers a spacious and well-lit environment, equipped with numerous looms, warping boards, a yarn closet, and a well-stocked supply closet. Weavers can fully immerse themselves in their craft, aided by the convenience of a washing machine and dryer, as well as a reading library for inspiration and knowledge. Additionally, the studio’s versatility allows for other artistic disciplines to benefit from the large expanse of tables and workspace when weaving classes are not scheduled. Your generous support will enable us to maintain and enhance this vibrant weaving sanctuary within the Louise Pitman Fiber Arts Building, empowering weavers to push the boundaries of their craft and preserving the rich heritage of weaving.

Week or Weekend Scholarships

Our scholarship program helps those who would otherwise be unable to attend have joyous and enlivening learning experiences. Examples of recipients might be young people without deeper financial resources, people burdened by the weight of medical debt, or those challenged by a significant life event who need respite. Imagine helping a passionate, burgeoning artist who’s poised to become a professional artist.

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.
