Fall 2015 Urban Weaving Retreats are posted!

The first day of fall was earlier this week, and we’re proud to present our fall Urban Weaving Retreats schedule! Find it under the Urban Weaving Retreats drop-down menu above.

Some highlights:

Guest artist Marina Szijarto will be sharing her practice in herbalism with us just in time for the cold-and-flu season — Plant Based Medicine Making for Community Immunity — Saturday afternoon, October 3, just a week and a half away!

Rebecca and Sharon will be leading at least three Urban Weaving Bootcamps — these are our crash courses in basic skills, to get you ramped up and ready to weave in one of our longer retreats.

Rebecca will be hosting another evening of Small Diagonal Plaited Baskets — with veneer for beginners; and for those of you familiar with the form already, using rough bark and yucca, and experimenting with corners — and in time to refresh for a Diagonal-Plaited Slippers retreat, early in the new year.

Sharon was busy this summer making herself the most enviable, hand-woven travel accessories imaginable for her time in Spain this fall. In December, she’ll be hosting a one-day retreat called Palm Pocket: Woven Hand Clutch, so that the rest of us may have the opportunity to make something as stylish as her accessories!
