Testimonials for our Video Classes:

When I left your in-person class earlier this fall, I told you that there was no way the video could be as good as an in-person class. Well, I was wrong! In the in-person class, we got to see you show us how to do something once, maybe twice. ... With the video, when I make a mistake I can go back and ... watch that segment multiple times until I get it. ... So I think the streaming class is actually better than the in-person class! The only thing missing is the wonderful food.

One of the most educational experiences of my weaving life was working with Becky Ashenden on designing, drafting and weaving on countermarch/counterbalance looms. Even though I was trained on jack looms, and continue to work on them, learning from Becky exponentially deepened my understanding of all weaving, added to my weaving "toolbox" and made my weaving practice far more streamlined and efficient.

Stream our DVD content

Becky's two classic video titles, Dress Your Loom the Swedish Way and Dress Your Swedish Drawloom, are now available for online streaming on Vimeo. Purchase lifetime access to these titles individually, or get access to them as part of your subscription to our entire streamed-video collection. (Also still available on DVD.)

Virtual Classroom

Free series of short but useful lessons on YouTube, with accompanying worksheets and reference materials. Becky created these instructional videos to help get us through the pandemic, and to support folks who are trying out the Warps to Go in our Store.

MiniMovies

Learn about weaving techniques and how to use our weaving equipment here. All of our MiniMovies are now conveniently hosted on YouTube — even the vintage ones from 2005, the 30-second-long silents, which we find not only charmingly nostalgic but still quite useful.
