Join us for our week-long open house. We will be open each day from 9 am – 4:30 pm. All of our looms will be decked out with festive towels and runners in plain weave. Little or no experience is necessary and ample instruction will be given. This is a terrific opportunity for experienced weavers to introduce a friend to the joy of weaving. Each day we'll host a teatime at 3 pm with Swedish cakes and cookies.
Each session (9 am – 12:30 pm or 1–4:30 pm) includes the use of one loom with a 1.5 meter length limit. If you would like to explore the wonderful world of weaving and have never thrown a shuttle, this is your opportunity! Experienced Vävstuga weavers who would enjoy more flexibility of scheduling and weaving length are encouraged to register for our Alumni Week.
Warps will be chosen on a first-come first-served basis according to your registration date and prompt arrival at the studio. Register early to get first dibs on your favorite warps! A meeting with Becky each morning will determine weaving plans for the day.
Contact us to sign up for a weaving slot. Our dormitory accommodations are available for the week if you're staying to weave; please inquire.
