CCOM 1414

Discover the joy of weaving! Using a small frame, experiment with a variety of yarns -- interlacing or wrapping them yourself. You’ll learn to understand the step by step fundamentals and structure of weaving, while increasing your enjoyment of textiles.

Over the course of four classes, take the opportunity to try several techniques and various projects, weights of yarn and warp spacing. By the end of the class, you’ll be the proud creator of one or two finished products, such as a small carpet, place mats, a wall hanging or a pet pillow. What are you weaving for?

About the instructor

Tina Sharapova was born in Moscow, Russia. She grew up in a big family, where everybody did something creative— embroidery, wood craving, knitting or sewing. Tina has experience with a variety of handicrafts. Her formal art training took place at the Moscow College of Arts and Crafts, with majors in carpet and tapestry making. After graduating, she worked for several years as a designer in a carpet company, then she took part in organizing a small tapestry studio, making unique designs for handmade tapestries.

Then in 2006, she moved to China with her family and after a period of searching for a new vision, she tried doll-making, paper clay, patchwork, and finally felt-making, which had similarities to her work with carpets for its soft texture and many usages. She also ran classes for children and adults. In 2016, she moved to Fredericton to continue her education at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design and to work on a diploma in Textile Design. She is a member of New Brunswick Crafts Council.
