Welcome to The Chicago Weaving School
The Chicago Weaving School provides expert instruction in the art of handweaving. With ongoing classes offered five days a week, beginning to advanced weavers find their creative home where they are free to explore color, texture and pattern through the medium of woven cloth. It is owner Natalie Boyett’s mission to provide an inspiring, inclusive, and encouraging space for all who enter.
All levels are invited to sign up for a WeaveSpa class, (children are welcome too) or dive into our regular “Wonder/Discover/Dream” Weekly Adult Weaving courses. Basket weaving workshops run the first Saturday of each month, and special workshops in weaving and other textile-related topics are offered as well. Please browse the gallery page to get an sense of the different kinds of things Chicago Weaving School students are making.

Weaving for Interiors
Sharing Recent Student Successes
Chicago Weaving School students have been creating some beautiful pieces lately. Here are some photos of their projects in the spaces they were designed to inhabit.(Speaking of weaving for interior spaces, there are a few more spaces open in the upcoming rug weaving workshop with Jason Collingwood. Click the link for information and email firstname.lastname@example.org to register or ask questions.)
The photo above features a rep weave runner woven by Carla Jankowski. She’d like to point out that the color match with the wall art was completely by accident.
And here is the piece hanging in the foreground of its new home.
