Lecture: “Väv Immersion: Sixteen Weeks of Textile Heaven”

Lecture: “Väv Immersion: Sixteen Weeks of Textile Heaven”,  Tammy Renner

Inspired by Marion Tuttle Marzolf’s historical novel Shuttle in Her Hand: A Swedish Immigrant Weaver in America, Tammy Renner dreamt of finding a residential weaving school where she could totally immerse herself in textiles. At that same time, BeckyAshenden, a graduate of Sweden’s Sätergläntan Institute of Handwork and known for her Vävstuga School of Swedish Weaving in Shelburne Falls, MA, imagined recreating the class she experienced in Sweden. In February 2016 their dreams merged with Tammy becoming one of six students in Becky’s inaugural Väv Immersion class. Tammy will share her stories, highlights, and notebook from her sixteen weeks in “textile heaven” as well as samples of Swedish textiles.

    1. Hello Kerry, Yes, it was great fun to share about my time at Vavstuga. And people were enthusiastic about the presentation, the weaving and notebooks from the 16 weeks. 3 in attendance will take the Basics class in the autumn and they are so excited. I wish you could have been here too. Some day, I hope our paths will cross again. Until then, I’m grateful for our writing connection. ❤
