The Michigan Weaver’s Guild meets once a month in Southfield, MI, which despite the name is just north of the city of Detroit. I was honored and delighted to present Väv Immersion: Sixteen Weeks of Textile Heaven”. Sharing about my experiences at Vävstuga opened all the memories once again. From the excitement and anxieties of the first week of class, the thrill of camaraderie, the intellectual challenges of design and fiber analysis, the accomplishment of finishing project after project, and the awe of the amazing instruction provided by Becky Ashenden and friends all came wafting back into my soul.
The table was filled with 16 weeks worth of weaving, plus a few projects Post-Vävstuga.
After the presentation the weaver’s gathered around to look, feel and experience the various fibers, textiles and class note books.
They shared their stories, ask questions and spoke of their creative aspirations.
I was delighted to see the last slide of the presentation in this photo as one of the weaver’s shared her textile dreams. Photos by my husband, Daniel Corwin.
