Vävstuga Treasures

Come experience a tranquil time at Vävstuga where you will receive individual coaching, one project at a time.

Instructor: Becky Ashenden

Dates offered 2018: Feb 7–9, Feb 14–16, Feb 21–23, Apr 18–20, Apr 25–27, May 2–4, Sep 19–21, Sep 26–28, Oct 3–5, Feb 28 – Mar 2 (class full; waiting list only)

Concurrent with Vävstuga Basics.

Take advantage of this opportunity to step beyond your realm of experience, no matter what that level might be. Students will be able to concentrate on their selected project and Becky will be on hand to get you started and to assist you as needed. This three-day session runs Wed–Fri; we encourage you to arrive Tuesday at 5pm to acclimate to your loom and project, pick colors, and throw the shuttle a few times to make the best use of your 3 weaving days.

Each piece may be large or small, simple or wildly complicated. We offer you the opportunity to create beautiful handwoven items that you might not tackle at home. We hope that you might chose a fiber new to you, a new technique, or simply a wonderful combination of many colors that you have not tried before. And, of course, our beautiful Swedish yarns will be well represented in the project choices, enabling participants to familiarize themselves with the variety of materials that we have to offer.

To choose a project: Choose your favorite(s) from our gallery of current projects, and contact us to secure your choice. Becky will gladly consult with you if you would like guidance.
