Full transparency:  
Workshop price goes towards preparing the floor loom for our workshop (approximately 12 hours for rep weave optionn), materials and my time. For the rep weave workshop, we will be weaving this weave structure which typically requires longer setup time and more material than a plain weave or twill weaving structure, for example. You’ll be taught by a weaver with a weaving lineage rooted in what is now known as the Philippines. Learning and immersing yourself in this treasured traditional craft is a remarkable opportunity.

About the Kusikus Pattern:
The Kusikus pattern is a pattern woven by the Itneg and Ilokano people in the Philippines. It is believed that the psychedlic, wavy pattern would confuse and ward off evil spirits. This pattern is protective.
