For those who do not know, Wendy Landry is possibly the only dedicated velvet-weaver in Canada. This is an opportunity for those who have not seen how velvet is woven to learn more about it, and how it can be woven on both a draw-loom and simpler counterbalanced looms. Wendy is also adept at the ingenious techniques used by Coptic weavers for weaving brocades, tapestries, and pile textures.
