Jennifer Moore's workshop for 4 and 8 shafts explores weaving two independent layers of cloth, double-width cloth, tubular weaving, color-and-weave effects, pique, quilting and doubleweave pick-up. Students with 8-shaft looms will also be able to weave samples of 2-block doubleweave techniques in checkerboard, windows and double-blocks. Graphing designs and working with multiple colors will be introduced. These techniques can then be taken home to create clothing, sculptural pieces, decorative hangings and whatever else the imagination can dream of.
Workshop fees are based on the minimum number of participants in each workshop, to include the instructor's fee and facility rental. Instructors may also set a separate supply fee. If the workshop is canceled, those who have paid will receive a full refund without penalty. Fees above the minimum needed to cover workshop costs go to the Guild general fund. Workshops for the benefit of the Guild, such as archiving, will have their costs paid by the Guild and there will be no cost to participants.
Unless otherwise stated, a deposit of 50% of the workshop maximum fee will be required to guarantee a spot in the workshop. This fee is due when you sign up for the workshop. The balance is due no later than the day of the workshop. If a participant cancels more than 14 days in advance of the workshop, the deposit and any additional workshop fees paid, minus a $25 cancellation fee will be refunded. No refunds are allowed within 14 days of the workshop. In case of emergency or illness, refunds will be considered on an individual basis up to 24 hours before the workshop. No-shows will be billed for any unpaid fees based on the full amount of the workshop.
Non-members registering for a workshop will be charged the workshop fee plus the annual Guild membership fee in force at the time of the workshop. Membership in any Handweavers Guild is considered to be a member of SAHG for purposes of this policy.
