    Lisa Hill

    special guest teacher Lisa Hill

    We are excited to announce a new class at Vävstuga this September:

    Shifting Threads
    with Lisa Hill, special guest teacher

    In September 2014 we welcome Lisa Hill as a guest instructor. Those who have not had the opportunity to work with Lisa are in for a real treat. 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.

    Shifting Threads is a new class at Vävstuga that will offer students a unique opportunity to explore shifting thread structures in depth. Participants will study and weave structures that perform amazing grid-defying feats. There are endless wonderful weave structures that accept the limitations of the vertical (warp) and horizontal (weft) grid, but in this class, using our beautiful Swedish linen, cottolin, cotton, and wool, we will defy that grid using loom controlled structures with interlacements that allow for movement, texture and curving lines.

    See the Shifting Threads class description for more details.

    There has been a lot of interest in this class, so contact us as soon as possible if you are interested.
