Weaving in Beauty Online Weaving Classes: Intermediate Navajo Weaving Techniques

Virtual Classroom

A look at our virtual classroom

This class is designed to take you beyond the basics of Navajo weaving techniques and into the realm of larger and more detailed designs.  You’ll join up to three other students in an online classroom where the week’s topic will be fully explained.   You’ll have time to ask questions and also show your work.    You’ll also have access to our growing library online videos and presentations so that you can review topics in depth for a more thorough understanding of what is being taught.   To successfully take this class, you should understand how to warp a Navajo style  loom and execute basic weaving techniques like turned and/or interlock joins and basic designs.  No sure if the class is right for you?  Contact me, and we’ll talk about where you are in your weaving journey to figure our where you need to start.

  • Week one: warping larger pieces, use of side selvage cords, loom modifications to support larger pieces
  • Week two: planning larger designs, gaining control over design execution, sectional weaving
  • Week three: problem solving with larger pieces and increasing graphic impact with outlining and color
  • Week four: introduction to raised outline
  • Week five: introduction to wedge weaves

Next session: 01/15, 01/29, 02/12, 02/26,  03/11 Time: 1:30 PM PDT, 2:30 PM MDT, 3:30 PM CDT, 4:30 PM EDT

    Ann, if you’re thinking of 2012, the schedule is in the Class Status at a Glance box on the left of most of the site screens. If you want further information or would like to register for a class, you’ll find the links at

    I am interested in an on-line class – not sure which time would work best. Please give me further details.
    Thank you! Ann

    I think it would be better for you to wait. The first class is about warping for larger pieces and designing for weavability, so I think it will save you effort in the long run if you wait.

    Hi Mary…
    I’m really looking forward to this class starting again. I was wondering, do you want us to put a warp on the loom prior to the first class? If so, about how wide, and how many ends per inch about?
    thanks Mary, talk to you soon,
