This event is in the past.
Laverne Waddington, the backstrap weaver from Bolivia, will be returning for another 2 day workshop in May.
This time we will look further into complementary-warp pick-up weaving. Pebble weave is just one structure that fits into this category. Complementary-warp weaving basically means that you are producing a band with two good faces as you do with pebble weave.
See Laverne's web site at <http://backstrapweaving.wordpress.com/>
Laverne only takes 8 participants in her workshops so as to be able to give everyone plenty of individual attention, so sign up early to ensure a place.
You do not have to have taken her previous workshops to attend this one, but if you do not have any backstrap weaving experience, it would be best to attend a basics refresher session with Eileen.
Tuition: $145 if there is full enrollment of 8 people, if the workshop is underenrolled there will be an additional fee. There is also a $10 material fee due at the workshop for each participant.
Deposit: We are requiring 50% down payment ($73) by Thursday, April 13, 2014. Online payment is preferred, but if you'd like to mail a check please send it to WSSA, P.O. Box 164201, Westlake Station, Austin Texas 78716-4201. Let us know if you do this so we can hold your spot.
Material Fee: $10 payable in class.
