Vävstuga Weaving School has recently announced they are accepting applications for Väv Immersion III. This textile opportunity of a lifetime will be held August 12, 2019 – November 22, 2019 in Shelbourne, Massachusetts. It is a great way to say, “I love you” to yourself. So, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing with you one of the best gifts I’ve ever given to myself.
Vävstuga’s founder & weaving guru, Becky Asheden, is an amazing educator and weaver. See my posts of Väv Immersion 2016 for details of all the incredible learning that occurred in 16 weeks. (Note: the 2019 is a 15 week class)
Students 35 and under are eligible for scholarships through the Ddora Foundation.
Students over 35 – if you need a little financial boost and are a member of the Handweaving Guild of America, consider applying for one of their grants , the deadline of March 1st.
If you are a member of another textile organization or local weaving guild, they too might have grants to support you.
Consider creating a fundraiser, offering your own handwoven goods as a thank you.
The Väv Immersion early deadline application is just around the corner – March 1st – and the regular application deadline is May 15th.
When you give yourself this gift – from rag to rug, thread to tablecloth, and yarn to blanket – you will be in delight! It is a fabulous way to love yourself!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Tammy
