Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are held at 7:00pm at Grace Lutheran Church, 65 East Main Street, Mendham, NJ. Click here for directions.

Please note that in this rather fluid situation, all is subject to change. Lectures are designed to be held virtually until it is safe to begin meeting again at the church.

September 1, we begin with a stroll through the “Garden of Baskets” with Judy Zugish. With Zoom, join Judy in her Marysville, Wa. 2 acre garden to view plants,  some common, some uncommon that supply fibers and roots, rods and barks for basketmaking.  With 30 years+ of  planting,  harvesting, and experimenting,  Judy has made the pathways from garden to studio a joyful song of life. Her exhibition baskets and teaching engagements contribute to the exciting preservation of ancient techniques and reach into new expressive possibilities. Judy says, “Your own gardens, and your neighbors! can inspire exploration and welcome you into basket wonders.”

Oct 6: via Zoom...Jennifer Moore- Double Rainbow presentation and workshop

On October 6, we will finally be able to see Jennifer Moore’s presentation on Double Rainbow: an Evolution in Color, followed by her  Double Rainbow workshop (four- or eight- shafts) given over four half days via Zoom. Because of the special circumstances of a virtual workshop, Jennifer has designed a method where there will be four- half day segments done over four days, October 7, 9, 11, 13. To accommodate those who work, we envision that each segment will run from 6-10 PM. By spacing the days, each participant will have adequate time to work on their weaving before seeing the next segment; all the segments together will be the equivalent of a three day workshop done in person. Jennifer assures me that the guilds that have taken this virtual workshop have been very happy with the results. All segments will be recorded so that participants will be able to watch and rewatch as they weave, and up to two weeks after the workshop finishes.  Naturally, since these recordings involve the intellectual property of Jennifer Moore, they are only for the use of those participants who have signed up and paid for the privilege of sharing that information. 

The cost of the workshop is $150. A $75.00, non-refundable deposit is required at the time of the sign up. There are a few spots left for the workshop. ASAP,  please fill out the Jockey Hollow Weavers sign up form:  https://forms.gle/cNpeKa8HcLAcJVwC6 

Click “Submit”, then send a check for $75.00 to treasurer, Daryl Lancaster, 6 Utne Court, Lincoln Park, NJ 07035. Be sure to write “Double Rainbow Workshop Deposit" in the memo area. You will receive instructions for setting up your loom as soon as we receive your check.
