Nothing catches the eye and collects compliments like a well constructed garment of hand-woven fabric. Would you love to use your weaving for garment construction but unsure how to go about it? In addition to discussing several loom-shaped garments ideal for handwovens, this one-day workshop will give you the opportunity to work through the process of commercial pattern choices (and alterations required for handwoven fabrics), cutting, sewing, and finishing. You'll gain confidence as you work under the guidance of an instructor, who has made numerous garments with her handwoven fabrics, and perhaps go home wearing your new vest.

Class size - maximum of 10 students.
