Greetings to all who have
expressed interest in Judith MacKenzie McCuin's San
Francisco classes in March 2009.
Here is the line up
4 day weaving workshop at
Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands
March 20-24, 2009
This is the third weaving workshop that Judith
has taught in the San Francisco area. As many of you
know - in addition to her expertise in spinning, Judith
is a master weaver. Last year we began this series
with warping our looms. The skill level in the class
ranged from beginner (me) to very experienced weavers.
We all walked away with homework in the form of sample gamps
to weave and bring back this year. This year the
focus will be drafting. This class is part of an ongoing
weaving series that meets annually with Judith to
build our weaving skills. New students are welcome to
join in the fun. This is a class for multi harness
weaving so you must have access to at least a 4 harness
table loom for the class.
This year's Class will be held at the Point Bonita
Lighthouse in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
The cost for class includes
class, lodging and food and there will be a small
additional materials fee.
Cost $560 plus materials. Covers class, class space,
food and lodging.$100 deposit at time of sign up
Dates and times: We can arrive
anytime after 3pm Friday afternoon. Friday evening we
will get our looms set up and have dinner. Class will
begin on Saturday morning after breakfast. Our last meal
on campus will be Tuesday lunch and class will end by
5pm on Tuesday.
3 Day Spinning Retreat at Point
Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands
March 13 - 16, 2009
Singles, Plys and Cables
The location for the retreat is lovely - We will meet at
the YMCA camp at Point Bonita Lighthouse. The stay at
Point Bonita includes our use of the class space, dorm
style rooms and (from everything I hear ) fabulous food.
The camp is an old Army facility when I went to see the
camp the group in residence at the time was a large
group of quilters from all over the country. Like us
they varied in age and physical ability. I met several
of the women and all said it was quite comfortable and
this was their 29th year of quilting at Point Bonita!
While we spin and knit we will enjoy the the services of
a terrific chef who is a graduate of the California
Culinary Academy. The staff is committed to handling any
dietary requests - including but not limited to
vegetarian and vegan diets.
Cost $445 plus materials Covers class, class space,
food and lodging. $100 deposit at the time
of sign up.
Times: We can arrive any time after 3pm on Friday
afternoon. Our first meal will be dinner on Friday. It
is a time of gathering and setting up. Class will begin
after breakfast on Saturday morning. Our last meal on
campus is Monday lunch and class will end by 5pm Monday.
