Becky Ashenden, our founder and principal instructor, has been teaching weaving since 1993 after 13 years as a production weaver. Becky emphasizes Swedish techniques because of her extensive study in Sweden throughout the years. Swedes have a long and valued history of weaving; the streamlined approach and the flexibility of the looms and patterns are hard to match. Each student leaves Vävstuga with fresh inspiration and greater ability.
Lisa Hill joined us in September 2014 as a Vävstuga instructor. Her cheerful and exuberant manner, along with her extraordinary expertise with color, design, and complicated weave structures, expand the opportunities at Vävstuga for students to acquire knowledge and experience in a joyful environment.
