Weave and Sew - August 24th - 26th FULL WEEKEND WORKSHOP
Beginner Weavers & Sewists Welcome.
This workshop is a unique opportunity to weave your own fabric and sew it into a garment in the same weekend! In this workshop you will create your very own custom top from start to finish. First, you will design and weave your very own unique fabric on a traditional table loom. Looms will be set up and ready to weave. You will learn how to create several patterns, choose a colour scheme and weave a unique accent fabric. Then, you will turn your fabric into a top, uniquely fit to you!
Friday Night, introductions & beginner tips. You start weaving & prepping your sewing.
Saturday, little more weaving, and then we get into some sewing! Your weaving comes off the loom and we take it and wash and prep the weaving for your last day.
Sunday, all your woven fabric is washed and ready to sew with! You get to admire your work and then we cut into it so we can add it to our top! You finish your project and we take some awesome photo's!
Everything you need is included for the workshop:
- Table Looms and weaving tools to use for weaving

- Washer Linen Fabric for your shirt (52% Linen, 48% Cotton Fabric)
