We strive to offer a welcoming and beautiful environment for all, regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation. Please note that the weaving studio is located on the second floor of our building, and can only be reached by stairs.
Since the coronavirus pandemic remains a serious health issue, we have put into place reasonable precautions for our classes. Some of us are at higher risk, and to keep everyone safe we kindly ask you to review these expectations before registering:
Everyone is required to wear a face mask in the school. Lunch and breaks are taken in a separate room from the studio.
Students will work at looms at least 6 feet apart from each other, and there will be a small number of students here at a time.
If you have symptoms of Covid-19, received a positive test result, or have been in contact with someone sick in the past two weeks, please let us know so we can reschedule your class.
If traveling to Vermont, please follow the Health Department's guidelines. We recommend quarantining at home if possible.
