I’ll be teaching a Loop Braiding workshop at CNCH this spring. For those of you in California, that’s the Conference of Northern California Handweavers.
CNCH isn’t only for weavers—aside from weaving classes there are always great workshops in a wide range of other topics — dyeing, braiding, basketry, spinning, knitting…and a Market Hall with venders, “make-and-take” demos, and awe-inspiring exhibits.
I love this conference! It only happens every other year, in its full form, so it’s eagerly awaited by all of us textile and fiber aficionados in Northern California, and feels like a celebration when it arrives…
My workshop will be in two 3-hour sessions, Fri afternoon and Saturday morning. I called it Loop braiding Potpourri, because I want the class to have fun with a bunch of different braids, including some that I don’t have tutorials for here on the blog. I’m assuming that most participants will be beginners to loop braiding, but it’s open to all levels of experience. If you’ve signed up for my workshop, contact me—I’d like to tailor the class to fit the students.
[update March - my workshop is full right now, but if you're interested it's always worth checking for cancellations later on. If I understood the CNCH website correctly(!), you can sign up for remaining class spaces in any of the various workshops on a same day / last-minute basis, without having to pay for the whole "program" as when you enroll in advance.]
