SPRING 2018

A new year stretching out in front of us--hope for change always on the horizon.  On the Armstrong Textiles homefront, I have bought a used stove for my garage studio at home.  Heat is a comin'!  This will allow me to do some "serious playing" (otherwise known as designing) on a couple of looms in there during the winter months.

On the LaHave Weaving Studio homefront, in a renovated old Lunenburg Foundry building in Lunenburg, the hand looms are covered in white sheets waiting for spring and the start of the summer workshops.  Please check out the LaHave Weaving Studio 2018 Workshop Schedule http://www.lahaveweavingstudio.ca/schedule-loom-use/  and you'll see new workshops and visiting instructors. This summer take a Textiles Discoveries Tour of the South Shore trying your hand at rug hooking, weaving, museum visits, and basket-making.  You can "Unfold the Mysteries of Pattern" with Nancy Price and develop your own repeat pattern step-by-step, with Nancy's help. Sharon Orpin will teach you about the joys of spinning your own yarn at a weekend workshop.  Enrich your wardrobe or furnishings with Kate Delmage at the "Embellish!" workshop--stitching, folding, beading,cutting onto a bag, a hat, a cushion, a sweater. Learn to weave during a variety of workshops, including a weekend Weave a Driftwood Hanging.  Contact Lesley 902-220-5430 or lesley@lahaveweavingstudio.ca
