Regional Workshop/Class Lists; Fiber at the Torpedo Factory


To keep track of regional class offerings, use the Guild calendar. Regional fiber organizations’ class lists are available on the calendar; just click on one of the 3 class lists (shops, guilds, festivals) which are found on the first day of each month. Contact me if you want better directions on how to use this feature.

The Torpedo Factory offers fiber workshops, has a fiber studio, and, on the Website, a great video on how to make a felted flower. Go to and scroll down to the video screen. It’s very good. However, they don’t seem to update the Webpages very often.

From the Website: “The Art League School in Old Town Alexandria, VA offers a wide variety of classes and workshops in the fiber arts, including courses in weaving, spinning, knitting, tapestry, dyeing, felting, surface design, silk painting, shibori, fiber sculpture, rug hooking and hat-making. Specialty classes focus on specific techniques. Workshops and beginning “jumpstarts” are also offered. Courses are offered year-round, during the week, weekend, day and evening, and are available for beginners as well as experienced artists!

The fiber studio boasts a large workspace with an assortment of floor looms, table looms, spinning wheels, dyeing facilities, a silk steamer, and an extensive fiber library.”
