A. Korotky Studio

Welcome to Andrea’s weaving studio 2021!

My weaving studio at 2331 Highland Avenue is located in the heart of the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia 22903. Curious about what a weaver’s studio looks like? Interested in learning to weave? Seen something listed for sale at my website or @aktextiles on Instagram?

To visit the studio, email me at akorotkystudio@gmail.com and let’s get together. I live and work here so it is easy to make arrangements. I welcome visitors, masks required these days!

To make a purchase, just hit the Buy Now button for the item at my website and it’s yours. You can pay with any credit card. As soon as you purchase it we can make arrangements for pickup here at the studio.

To set up a weaving class here at the studio, or a personal lesson on FaceTime, email me at akorotkystudio@gmail.com or text me at 434 295 5057. My distance-learning program is practical, useful and a lot of fun. We’ll work together, wherever you are and whatever your questions may be. Cricket loom and floor loom help is on the way! Don’t hesitate to connect.

In addition to showing and selling my handmade woven work I sell weaving looms, weaving yarns, and teach weaving here at the studio. As a registered Schacht dealer I can order looms and other weaving equipment for your use if I don’t already have it in my supply cupboard. These days the 15-inch Cricket Loom, a rigid heddle loom, is very popular. It’s super easy to set up, versatile, portable, and simple to learn. You can use some of your knitting yarn stash on the Cricket loom which is one reason the rigid heddle loom is so useful.

This is how my tables are set up for teaching on FaceTime.
My distance learning classes are fun, well-organized and include lots of sketches, diagrams, and email exchanges from my teaching library.
You will be working and learning to weave side-by-side with me.
My wall of weaving yarns, for sale and use in teaching and learning weaving, is shown below.

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. Frequently I include knit, crochet, and knotted work in my collection; painted cloth and shibori reverse are always on hand. Take a look around and let me know what you think! And thank you for visiting my website today!
