    2023 OPEN WEAVING in Conover Workshops’ Studio

    We have wound four beautiful warps; beamed, threaded, sleyed, and all tie-ups are completed. The impetus to developing this Open Weaving is to allow weavers who are alumnus of  our Comprehensive Basic Weaving or Vävstuga Basic Weaving, to weave projects to their heart’s content and to enjoy like-minded camaraderie.

    Please choose consecutive days, which would suit your schedule. Susan has woven each of these projects and will have the finished pieces available for your perusal. Now, you ask, how many days will it take to weave each project? That depends on a few factors:

    ·      Familiarity with the loom

    ·      Experience with the weave structure

    ·      Understanding the fiber(s) you will be weaving 

    ·      Speed of weaving, which is subject to various dynamics (including the alignment of the planets)

    If you wish, bring along some weaving buddies and make it a memorable event. We want this to be an enjoyable experience without pressure. The projects were chosen not to be difficult but a learning experience. Perhaps you have never woven the structure being offered or accustomed to the materials, well now is the time to step up to the plate in a controlled environment. 

    The fee is $75/day (9am-5pm) plus material fees. Susan will familiarize you with the equipment and project, then you are on your own. Don’t panic, she will be in and out of the studio during your visit. Bring your own sack lunch and beverage. All materials and equipment are provided. 

    We will have a better handle on the cost of each project per yard/meter when we get closer to mid-May. The Swedish yarn industry is in a bit of flux, (due to a major manufacturer going out of business and another absorbing their product line). Availability and pricing of all yarns should be a known factor by that date. 

    Final details will be up on our website by May 15th and registration begins June 1st. A non-refundable deposit of $75 is required for each day.
