Weaving workshop in Barrhaven — 28 Feb. 2015

Mark your calendars – Saturday, 28 February, from 10am to 1pm, at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School (LDHSS), right in the heart of Barrhaven!

If you’ve been hearing or seeing news about using a frame to weave milkbags into mats, then register now:

(or call 613-823-3630)

Faster than crocheting – uses more bags – easier on the wrists. It’s a whole new way to make mats!

Workshop leader will be Danielle Duval-Conway. Frames based on Danielle’s design are produced by the LDHSS woodworking shop and will be available at the weaving workshop.

Come and see what weaving with milkbags is all about. If there is sufficient interest, future workshops could be organised. (For a poster, click here: workshop-28-Feb-poster; feel free to print and post!)
