Fibers Open Studio Hours

​Saturdays: 3 PM - 5 PM

Instructors are not available for assistance during these times. *We do NOT hold open studio hours during session breaks (you can find these here).

​It should be noted that current students have first dibs on the following class session in order to stay on their looms. Due to this system, we do not always have available spots in our classes. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we also encourage potential students to sign-up for our topics classes or join the waitlist to be notified of openings.

It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing some recent changes to the fibers program at Access Arts.

Unfortunately, our weaving instructor, Nessi has made the decision to leave Access Arts. Without Nessi’s expertise and guidance, Access Arts does not feel like we can provide weaving classes in January that would match the level of programming you have come to know and love. For this reason, we will not host any fiber classes in the January 2024 class session. The hope and goal is for classes to return in the spring, but this all hinges on our ability to find a suitable replacement. We look forward to sharing more as soon as we can.

We want to acknowledge how unfortunate this news is, and the organization does not take this decision lightly. We are so grateful for all of our students' continued support, particularly through the last few years as the world went through a global pandemic and Access Arts (and the fibers department in particular) made many necessary changes to keep up.

We believe that what makes Access Arts great is the excellent instruction and creative experiences we can provide, and we don’t want to offer fiber classes until we can provide instruction that is nothing short of excellence.

We want to thank Nessi for their contribution to Access Arts. When they took over the fibers department, they were faced with a lot of complicated challenges. They took on those challenges with excitement and passion, and have built a program that is not only dynamic and educational but also a safe space for our students to explore. They will be missed.


When inclement weather occurs, class cancelations will be decided by the instructor of the class. If WE cancel any 6-week classes due to weather or COVID-19, they will be made up at a later date. If class is not canceled, but a student feels unsafe traveling, they can stay home, but NO make-up class will be provided. We encourage you to make up any lost time during open studio hours and ask about any material missed during the following class.

Your instructor will contact you if class is canceled. Please make sure they have your correct contact information. If you have any questions about our cancelation policy, please don't hesitate to email us at​ ​or call us at 573-875-0275.


We frequently offer a limited amount of free and half-price spots for low-income families or individuals who are interested in any of our programs! If you want to apply for consideration when spots become available, find more information on how to apply here!​​
