Textile and Fiber Arts Classes


"It's not just a class, it's an experience!"


Take a step back in time and join Harrisville Designs for our 48th year of workshops, and study with incredible teachers from around the country who will inspire you to a new level of expertise. Harrisville Designs offers workshops on weaving, knitting, spinning, fiber dyeing, sewing, felting and more. 

Harrisville Designs workshops are held on the second floor of the Bethuel Harris Mill building and overlook the Harrisville canal and mill pond originally operated on water-power. This beautiful brick building was built in the 1830’s as a spinning mill for locally raised wools, and it now houses the Harrisville Designs retail store and studio space. It is relished for its sunlit windows, fresh air and tranquility. Most classes meet daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; however, the studio is open to students 24 hours a day while class is in session. During 5-day workshops, students have the opportunity to tour our spinning mill and listen to a talk on the history of Harrisville.

For more information or to sign up for one of our classes, please call the HD Retail Store at 603-827-3996. 

We highly recommend staying in our Cheshire Mills Boarding House while taking a class. The Cheshire Mills Boarding House is inexpensive, and only a quick walk to the studio and shop! Learn more.
