5 days of double weave with Anna Champeney in Galicia, north Spain

5 wonderfully intensive and stimulating days at Anna´s weave studio in the beautiful moutain setting of the Ribeira Sacra, some 2 hours from Santiago de Compostela with two fairly experienced weavers as students.  A busy time, working hard, setting up looms, getting to grips with double weave, enjoying the local wine.

 

A real sense of wonder, accompanying the students and encouraging them to discover the real wonder of being able to design double weave fabrics on one´s own – instead of copying instructions from a book or a set of course notes.

“I felt inspired coming to this course – but I´m going back home even more inspired”

“I can´t wait to get home to do more sampling”

A great course experience, so thank you Mercedes and Estela and see you here again for some natural dyeing or Weavepoint tuition!  Anna.

Anna´s special approach to teaching is to encourage students to learn for themselves – and really  get to grips with what the threads and loom shafts are actually doing when a double weave fabric is made.

Does it seem difficult to weave 4 layers of fabric, one underneath another, on an 8-shaft loom?  In the course you have the chance to weave a sample and discover yourself how it´s constructed and woven.

El ambiente en Anna Champeney Estudio Textil ha sido relajado y estimulante. En los bajos de la casa típìca de piedra donde se imparte el curso se protege del fuerte calor de agosto.

There are so many possible samples to weave – Anna guides students through different variations but students are able to follow their own inclinations and try out variations that occur to them.

Intense concentration, yes.  But also humour, wine tasting and lots of weavery conversations
