About this workshop:

This is a round robin style workshop where each student weaves on four different looms to create a series of samples to take home and refer to for future projects. Next, participants can choose their favourite design from the sampling and design a project around it to weave following the workshop with the support of the instructor. 

This workshop was created to help weavers improve their ability to customize their weaving and feel confident building their own drafts. Learning to read and alter drafts allows you to go beyond the pattern and make cloth that is totally your own.
