Nancy Boyne

After taking a frame loom weaving and macramé course at MSVU in 1972, Boyne fell in love with, and was hooked on, weaving! Over the years, she has participated in numerous workshops and conferences and has worked with many with world renowned fiber artists. She now works full-time in her home studio producing table linens towels, rugs, blankets, shawls and scarves using mostly natural and exotic fibres such as silk, alpaca, mohair, cotton, hemp, linen, organza, and musk ox. She has been a member of the Atlantic Spinners and Hand Weavers for 33 years and is a juried member of the NSDCC. She is a traditional weaver who loves to see her work used and enjoyed.

 

Current / Upcoming Courses

26. Introduction to Weaving

Beginners (as well as those who have come for a refresher class) will learn to weave on four harness floor looms. Students will learn to wind a warp, to dress the loom, the basics of color and design, and the use of appropriate fibres. Students will begin by weaving a sampler and then advance to a scarf by using the cottons provided. 

27. Intermediate Weaving

This class is for students with previous weaving experience who are ready to tackle different techniques of their choice (or just love the sociable aspect of weaving). Come with a project in mind, or simply an idea. Students will be required to provide their own fibres. This course will take into account individual skills and projects.
