Wedge Weaving with Connie Lippert
June 21 - 25
We are so thrilled to offer an exclusive workshop with Connie! She specializes in wedge weaving using yarns hand-dyed with natural materials. Wedge weave is a tapestry weave originated by the Navajo around 1870 and practiced by them for two or three decades. In contrast to most weaving which is woven horizontally on the loom, wedge weave is woven on the diagonal which gives it its characteristic scalloped edge. Connie's work celebrates nature and the spirit that reveres the natural world. Her message is one of environmental respect and protection.
Our excetional weekend kicks off with a reception to introduce Connie and her work on Thursday evening. Instruction will begin Friday and continue for four days through Monday with a gourmet lunch break each day. Weavers will work on a combination of walking looms, Mirrix looms and possibly floor looms.
$695 per person *

Facilitated by SAORI Weaver Karen Elrod
and Betsy Baier, LCSW Specialist in Grief Counseling

Weaving has often been described as therapeutic and meditative. SAORI style weaving is welcoming and engaging as well. Weaving in a group creates a sacred space for healing... a comforting atmosphere for sharing our deep concerns and hurts. This workshop is designed for those experiencing difficult life transitions such as grief, loss, change of health, loneliness and depression.
We begin with a Thursday night reception, weaving Friday through Sunday, as well as guided opportunites for group and individual support. Stay tuned for price and further details.
