Full Transparency

Workshop price goes towards preparing the floor loom for each workshop, materials and my time. We will be weaving the rep 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 an investment and remarkable opportunity.
