The Scandinavian style of weaving is generally (but certainly not limited to) crisp, clean lines and simple designs using pleasing colors and natural fibers. Project choices include use of Dräll or False Damask, Halvdräll, Monk’s Belt, Spot & Waffle weaves or Scandinavian Snowflakes—all great structures for scarves, shawls, simple garments, towels, table runners or pillow tops. The possibilities are endless! Samples and drafts will be available for inspiration. Floor looms (4- and 8-harness) and weaving accessories provided.
Connie Westbrook has passionately pursued handweaving since her first Sievers class in 2003. Her work is inspired by and reflects the work of some of the most respected weavers in the country. Connie’s passion for Scandinavian weaving has taken her to Sweden and Vesterheim in Decorah, IA, and her work has been published in Handwoven magazine. Connie believes that weaving is meant to be shared, which she happily does.
