John Campbell Folk School class this weekend

I'm taking a class in Alexander Technique this weekend at the Folk School. I'm hoping to learn method(s) for the ways in which I use my body while tapestry weaving that will allow me to weave without having the pain I often do.

I've heard many good things about the technique and am looking forward to the experience! Of course, spending time at the Folk School is always a treat. It's been a long time since I've been a student there--had my first weaving class at JCFS in about 1974 or 75. I've taught there many times since the early 1980s although I'm not on the schedule for 2008. Instead, I'm teaching a week-long class at Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in September of this year as part of my teaching schedule.

Last year I decided to concentrate my teaching to the NGCSU classes and private teaching at my studio and to include only one class away from home. I've been able to have much more studio time for my own tapestry--with good results, I feel.
