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.

Weaving Tips, Tricks and Hacks

Come and join Fran Nowakowski,  Daphne Trenaman and April MacLean as they share some of the ideas and tricks they use to make their weaving go a little more smoothly. 

The format for the day will be an open discussion, loosely organized around the following categories: Planning, Warping, Preparing to Weave and Weaving.  Everyone is encouraged to ask questions and to share their own discoveries and solutions to help others.

There is no handout so please bring some paper and a pen to take some notes. Cost for the day is $5 to pay for room rental.  Bring your lunch.  Coffee and tea will be provided.
