Damascus Fiber Arts School provides an inclusive community space for weaving and learning the art and craftsmanship of fiber arts.  In addition to Open Studio days, we have classes and workshops in tapestry, weaving on a Navajo-style loom, spinning, basketry, dyeing, and more. 

Our monthly Tapestry Talks are a big hit. We hope to continue that. For $10 you can sign up for the live talk and the recorded video. One Saturday each month, we have invited a tapestry artist to give a presentation about their work. The links can be found under the Tapestry Talks tab. https://damascusfiberartsschool.org/course-category/tapestry-talks/

Keep up to date on what is happening at the school and in the weaving community. Check out the DFAS Blog.

New Weavers!!! Sign up for one of the 3-day Beginning Tapestry Workshops. Most months have one scheduled with either Janet Dorow, Margaret Jeppesen, or Becky Smith. Small groups, plenty of personalized instruction, no pressure. You will love it!

Astoria Art Loft Show, May-June, 2024

Here are a few photos from our Tapestry Exhibit at the Astoria Art Loft.

Visit our School Shoppe while you are in the area.  We have a selection of yarn by Harrisville and Brown Sheep, and we carry the Faro line from Glimakra.  We have Al Snipes weaving forks, Joy Moss tapestry bobbins, copper pipe looms, and some books. We just got a selection of weaving combs from Bill Crawford, along with one of his Sketch Looms.
