Krokbragd Weaving Workshop with Johana Cordero

October 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Krokbragd is Norwegian for crooked path, and is a weft faced bound weave with intricate designs.

In this workshop series with textile artist Johana Cordero, we will learn by Zoom to master Krokbragd patterns, and design our own weaving drafts for a project. An
in-person session to learn practical weaving techniques will increase design versatility.

Registration options: Zoom sessions 1 and 3 only: $40 (non members $45). All sessions 1, 2 and 3, including the in-person studio tuition day, the fee is $100 (non members $110).
