15-week Väv ImmersionThe 15-week Väv Immersion Program is drawing to a close and we are happy to announce that it was a great success. We are also sad to see these six talented and good-humored weavers take their leave. We wish Christine, Danielle, Emily, Joan, Kira, and Michael all the best in their future weaving endeavors! A Väv Immersion Celebration and Grand Exhibition of their weaving and learning will be held on Saturday, December 16th, from 1-4pm at 80 Bassett Road, Shelburne Falls. We hope our local weaving friends will join us! Here are a few pictures of their recent weaving adventures in the barn and in the classroom. We’ll share more pictures of their many accomplishments in our January News.
Fun with Vävstuga Favorites and Treasures classesWe had a full house for both our October and November Vävstuga Favorites and Vävstuga Treasures classes. Here are pictures of some of their beautiful projects on the loom.
Scandinavian Knitting with Beth Brown-ReinselBeth Brown-Reinsel is such a delight to have as a guest teacher at Vävstuga! This year’s class worked on a sample of the Norwegian Fana cardigan sweater, using our beautiful Tuna wool yarn. Next year Beth will offer the traditional Saami mittens in her Scandinavian Knitting class, October 17-19, 2018.
Birch Bark Ornament Workshop with Elaine MoeOur last class of 2017 was the traditional Scandinavian birch bark ornament with guest teacher Elaine Moe. While it took patience and careful folding, everyone had a great time. Elaine will be back to teach Birch Bark Weaving next year, so you can plan to create one of these Scandinavian treasures on Friday, August 17, 2018.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from Becky, Bettie, Kim, Tonya, and Laurie! Join us at Vävstuga for a great class, visit our store (Tues–Fri 9–3) or our web store any time, and check out our Facebook page and Ravelry group.
