Successful Year for Lethbridge Weavers

It has been a very successful year for the Lethbridge Weavers and our members are looking forward to 2013/2014.

Moving into our new space at CASA has been wonderful. It is a great space that is sure to pollinate ideas among all the artists and medias at this centre.

Here are a few images of projects from 2012/2013:

Kayla's Experience with Lethbridge Weaver's Mentorship Program



My First Project as a Mentee!
My name is Kayla and I started weaving October 2012 at the Lethbridge Handicraft Guild. I started with the mentorship program with Karla as my mentor. I have really enjoyed weaving and believe that I picked it up rather quickly. I have learned a lot and hope that I can continue weaving at the guild for a long time to come. During the mentorship, I made two tea towels and a scarf. Recently, I finished another tea towel and I am currently finishing another for a wedding gift. The weaving projects are good for anything, but I like giving them as gifts because the gifts are something that amaze many of my friends and family because it is not something of this generation. I love the fact that it is a classic pastime and is like travelling back in time to when this wasn’t just for fun.

My second project.

My third project!
