Workshops – Western Reserve Spinners & Weavers


The Western Reserve Spinners & Weavers Guild is proud to host dynamic instructors in weaving, spinning, and other fiber arts several times throughout the year. Here's what is coming up. Be sure to check back often to find out about other new programs that have been added. 

 March 28 & 29, 2020 – Yer Granny’s Overshot, with Janet Dawson.  This round robin workshop will cover overshot basics like identifying blocks, tromp-as-writ, star vs. rose fashion, and opposites. With that foundation, we’ll move beyond traditional patterns and treadling to variations like Italian, flamepoint, swivel, petit point, shadow, treadled as lace, and more. If time allows, we'll also look at name drafting and other methods of designing original overshot patterns for four shafts.

This class is full, but we’re accepting names for the wait list. Please contact Nancy Curtiss for more information.
