Learn the Basics of Fingerweaving

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$110
Small finger woven sample


Finger weaving is a traditional type of hand weaving used to create the celebrated ceinture fléchée, colourful sashes historically worn by voyageurs during the fur trade. This type of weaving is unique because it does not require a loom, or any bulky, expensive equipment.

You will learn several basic techniques and weave at least 2 samples to practice your new skills. Our instructor and museum volunteer Jo Harris will guide you in selecting colours, laying out and planning your design and weaving your samples successfully.

No experience necessary, but manual dexterity is required.
