OHS Weaving Certificate Program
The OHS Weaving Certificate Course consists of 18 units which were designed to be completed independently by homestudy. There may be opportunities to do a Unit in a hands-on workshop at an OHS conference or with a guild. We also offer virtual groups which provide support and encouragement to members in the course.
The Weaving Certificate is achieved by passing all 18 Units. Although the Units may be taken in any order, it is recommended that Units 1 (Weaving Basics) and 2 (Colour and Design) be done before the others. Some weaving knowledge is required before taking the course. Please see Are You Ready to Start the OHS Weaving Certificate Course? before you begin.

You can purchase the weaving by logging in to our member page. Please note that this page is only for OHS members so you will need to login to view.
Attention: The marking fee for the weaving units has been increased to $50. The OHS Board has approved this increase in recognition of the talents of our unit leaders. We are fortunate to have very knowledgeable, experienced unit leaders and feel that this increase more accurately reflects the time and effort each spends in reviewing student work and providing valuable feedback.
Registration is now open for two fall virtual study groups: Unit 7 - Checks and Plaids, and Unit 1 - Basic Weaves. The groups will each meet for seven sessions. Unit 7 meets on the following Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. ET.: October 3, 17, 31, November 7, 21, December 5, January 23.
Unit 1 meets on Thursdays: October 5, 19, November 2, 16, 30, December 14, January 25.
It is not necessary to have completed previous units to enroll in Unit 7. The study group does not offer instruction but provides encouragement and support as well as the opportunity to meet with the unit leaders twice during the semester. Registration and the Unit can be purchased in the Members' section of this website.
Information on the Weaving Certificate Virtual Study Group Pilot Program
Now you can plan your weaving life as you work on your OHS Weaving Certificate!
Beginning in October, 2021, OHS will be offering virtual study groups as a 6 year semester-based system. As always, students will work on their Weaving Certificate independently, but will have the opportunity to join a virtual support group for each unit, if they choose.
Each year will consist of three discrete semesters. Students registering for a particular unit will join the virtual study group for that semester only and will need to register for subsequent sessions as they occur.
Membership in a virtual study group allows access to the Virtual group Facebook page and to videoconferencing meetings with the Unit leader at the beginning of each unit for a unit overview, and at a halfway point for a Q and A session.
The introductory Units 1 and 2 will be offered more frequently – once per year – giving interested weavers the opportunity to begin the program with the support of a virtual study group within the 6-year timeframe.
Videoconference meetings for Units 1 and 2 will be offered on Thursday evenings at 7:00 EST, meetings for subsequent units will be offered on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 EST.
There will be a $10 non-refundable registration fee to join a virtual group, payable each semester, to cover program costs and unit leader compensation. Registration will open one month prior to the semester start date.
