If you are interested in learning to weave, or just curious to see what a weaver’s studio looks like, take advantage of this special invitation which is good from August through December, 2018: a free, hour-long visit to my studio. You can check out the looms I work and teach with, try them out, and get all your weaving questions answered. Email me akorotkystudio@gmail.com to arrange your visit!

I keep several types of weaving looms in stock. I am a registered Schacht dealer and can order looms and other weaving equipment for your use if I don’t already have it in my supply cupboard. These days the Cricket Loom, a rigid heddle loom, is very popular. Crickets come in two sizes, a 10-inch, and a 15-inch. They are super easy to set up, versatile, portable, and simple to learn. Often you can use some of your knitting yarn stash on the Cricket and I will be glad to show you how!

The studio at 2331 Highland Avenue is located in the heart of the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia. I work year-round, and welcome visitors.  To arrange a visit, email me at akorotkystudio@gmail.com. Or call me at 434 295 5057. I am generally in, or around, the studio, every day as I live and work here.

Perhaps you are wondering what kind of work I do? I weave one-of-a-kind textiles on my 8-harness loom and have, in stock, household linen, wraps, blankets, garlands to wear, and cloth of all sorts. Beads, sequins and vintage and hand-made glass buttons often adorn my work. Frequently I include knit, crochet, and knotted work in my collection; painted cloth and shibori reverse are always on hand.

Commissions and inventions are my specialty. Cash, check, credit cards and PayPal all work here. Follow me @aktextiles on Instagram and at A. Korotky Studio on Pinterest.

Thank you for visiting my website today!
