Studio Activities


overshot studio project

Our summer break is almost over.  We are gearing up for a busy fall with the Lighthouse Fall Fair on September 2nd followed by a busy workshop schedule that includes mushrom dyeing and beginner weaving lessons.

The studio has been a busy place all summer with two studio projects on the go, overshot mats and rosepath runners.  We've also had monthly drop in sessions when members are invited to bring whatever they are working on.

Members have found time to work on their craft in between trips and visits from friends and family.  The exploring more group have been working on "distorted cloth".  Below are some examples of distorted cloth.  One scarf was woven with active yarns that shrink with finishing.  The other employed a woven shibori technique with steaming to create a rippled surface.
