Master Spinning and Weaving-Olds College

The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room is proud to partner with Olds College to offer all levels of the Master Weaving and Master Spinning courses. At this stage, levels one and two of both spinning and weaving are on the schedule for 2016 and 2017.

 

The Master Weaver Program  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,  and the homework assignments are due a year after the workshop is completed. This allows students to then enroll in the next level offered the following year.
