Update: The workshop was very successful and everyone had a great time. Laverne Waddington will be teaching a Complementary Warp Pick Up Backstrap Weaving Workshop. The fee is $200. See the flyer attached for more details (waddington backstrap weaving info and registration form). See https://backstrapweaving.com/ for more information on the instructor.
Update: We worked hard. The warps were measured and dyed, the weft was ordered and received, the looms were dressed and the scarves came out beautiful. The four new weavers survived the journey and were happy with their work. Weave a tencel or bamboo scarf. Come prepared to work hard on Saturday Dec 8 0900-1500 at a member’s Weaving Studio in Toney AL. Contact the Guild to receive driving directions.
After the success of the Weave a Towel Workshop this past year, we’re having a Weave a Tencel or Bamboo Scarf Workshop, September – December, 2018. Each person will weave one tencel or bamboo scarf. If time and skill permit, you may be able to weave samples or scarves on other looms. You have the option of weaving on your own loom (floor, table or rigid heddle) or borrowing a loom. You can do as much work as you want: you can create your warp and dress your own loom or a borrowed loom, or pay more to have other guild
members create your warp and dress a borrowed loom. We planned the scarves and ordered yarn in September. We measured, wound and space dyed the warps in October. We’ll warp the looms in November, weave the scarves in December and finish weaving (if necessary) in January. This workshop is for novice weavers as well as advanced weavers. There is a limit of 12 participants due to the space at the member’s Weaving Studio in
Toney. See the attached flyer for details. Weave a Tencel ScarfCurrent(1)
