New Class Added: Plain weave isn’t plain!

Plain Weave Isn’t Plain – Sandra Doak, Friday Afternoon

Austin WinterThere are many techniques to weave designs and images into your plain weave cloth. I will be teaching hand manipulated techniques and speaking about plain weave designs created by order of color. Depending on the scale and contrast, the results can be subtle or dramatic. Using these techniques are easy and suitable for both beginning and experienced weavers.  Details on Friday’s Seminars page.

Here’s what one of Sandra’s students has to say:

As an advanced weaver, I took Sandra’s Plain Weave Isn’t  class a year ago and completely enjoyed myself, opening up new creative opportunities. I was in the class with beginners and we all had fun exploring plain weave from different perspectives.  Sandra is a very organized, effective teacher with decades of weaving, designing and teaching experience.  I highly recommend this class for any weaver. 

Sandra Doak is a veteran weaver and cum laude graduate of Kent State University’s B.F.A. program, 1990. From 1991 until 2004 she owned and operated two weaving studio store fronts and taught weaving and related topics as she moved with her family from Ohio to North Carolina, Arkansas, and finally Austin, Texas.

Other ventures along the way included; starting a summer art camp for kids in Ohio, teaching at the Art Center in Charlotte, N.C. and starting a weaver’s guild, “Fiber Interest Guild” in Arkansas. From 2007 to 2011 she lent her expertise to get a weaving studio and yarn store off the ground in Wimberley, TX. Sandra has also shown and sold her work in various galleries in all four states.

Since 2013 she has been sharing studio space with several like-minded fiber artists in South Austin and Sandra currently sells one-of-a-kind woven wearables.
