New Orleans Weaving Studio

Lena and Phoebe are both textile artists that share a studio space in New Orleans. They work on their looms making scarves, blankets and tapestries and also love to teach the craft to whomever is inspired to learn. They teach out of their studio as well as different locations around town from herb stores and craft shops to museums and gardens. Our goal is to keep the art of weaving alive and promote the craft as a meditative activity, a tactile workout and of course a form of artistic expression.

What we offer:

We hold private and group lessons in our bywater studio where we teach weaving techniques on floor looms as well tapestry weaving, and punch needle. 

Frame loom weaving is a fun and punch needle are creative activities that can be taken anywhere. A perfect addition to any event. We supply everything you need to for a exciting  workshop wherever you are hosting your party!

Kids love weaving too! Ages 7 and up welcomed!

Four harness weaving class with Lena

This is our 20" Structo Artcraft Table Loom. As you can see there are no floor treadles, this is hand operated.

This our 24" Norwood floor loom

This is our 22" Dorset Floor loom

This is our Kromski Harp rigid heddle loom. This is a great loom to come by the studio and try out if you are thinking of purchasing your own loom. Rigid heddle looms are great for home weavers and are fairly inexpensive and widely accessible.
