with Marta

Marta has been interested in fiber arts since a young age, thanks to a mother who was an amazing seamstress. She was inspired to learn weaving several years ago through trips to Central and South American countries where women still weave complex patterns using simple backstrap looms. She is passionate about exploring color and texture on the rigid heddle. She is a member of the Michigan Handweavers Guild and was mentored by Nancy Peck. The class is designed for those who want to learn more about rigid heddle weaving, whether as a beginner or someone who has learned the basics and wants to move forward to explore other possibilities. You will work on your own portable loom using yarns of your choice and learn to plan and create your own project.
