Vävstuga Vävsters Winter Retreat

Weave together with fellow Vävstuga alumni

Dates offered 2022: Feb 21 – Mar 18

Have you been to Vävstuga many times and are wondering "What's next for me?"

You can become a Vävstuga Vävster if you have taken:

  • Vävstuga Basics
  • Swedish Classics
  • One other 4–5 day class
  • (Väv Immersion satisfies all prerequisites. Mini Immersion satisfies Basics & Classics.)

If this describes you, this is an opportunity to gather with some of your favorite classmates for some targeted projects and weaving goals. As a Vävstuga Vävster, you will troubleshoot together and inspire each other to new weaving heights and ambitions.

What you can expect

  • A loom to yourself (or share looms as you choose)
  • Drawloom alumni may choose a drawloom to yourself
  • Vävstuga Bandlooms to share
  • Morning planning sessions with Becky
  • Access to our extensive research library
  • 3 classroom sessions each week to be determined by the group
  • Lots of quiet time to focus on your weaving
  • 2 group dinners each week
  • Self-serve breakfast and lunches

Project options

  • Gear your choices towards our Vävster Award requirements
  • Order your warp from us in advance to get the most out of your time here
  • See Vävstuga Projects for lots of possibilities
  • Full project set-up is available ahead with enough notice
  • Plan your own projects
