Alberta Culture Days Sheep to Shawl Demonstration

EWG members (the Master Wannabees study group and friends) demonstrated how a piece of cloth is handwoven using handspun fibres at a “Sheep to Throw” demonstration.

This event helped celebrate our 65th Anniversary and was part of Alberta Culture Days, Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the Alberta Craft Council – Feature Gallery, 10186 106 Street, Edmonton, lower level.

As you can see from the photos, we are busy spinning and weaving while visitors  asked questions. It provided all of us who participated a chance to get to know each other and to share our passion.  The end result was stunning. The handspun warp was amazing and the alpaca weft made the throw incredibly soft.
