Whether you have ever woven before or not, indulge yourself with a day at Vävstuga. We welcome you to come and weave on one of our sturdy Swedish looms to make something beautiful in an inspirational environment.

New weavers will love our "one-room schoolhouse" setting, which puts new weavers together in an inspirational environment with experienced weavers creating fantastic heirloom pieces.

Projects may include:

  • runners
  • towels
  • yardage
  • tablecloths
  • aprons

Quick and easy projects will always have a dedicated few looms during our Vävstuga Treasures sessions. Here you can rub elbows with our more experienced weavers while you enjoy your own project for the day.
