WSW Study Group

Executive Board

The CHH Study Groups have great fun learning new things. Here’s a report from Scharine Kirchoff about the Westside Weavers and Spinners (WSW) Study Group:

This year, we, the CHH Westside Weavers are studying Ikat (eeh-kaht) textiles followed by planning our own handwoven cloth…


Connie and Lisa study traditional Kasuri Ikat patterns of Okinawa

On some Tuesdays we trek out yonder to Penny’s dye studio and dye our resist-tied skeins in indigo broth ….


Pat considers another dip of her skein in the indigo pot


Cheryl’s resist-tied and indigo dyed skeins

Some of our members keep a scrapbook documenting the journey… hey, did you know that Rosemary dries her Ikat skeins on a tomato cage gurney?


Rosemary documents her project in a scrapbook

And we sample, sample, sample as us weavers do… and, wouldn’t you know it? Dottie finished her sample first too!


Dottie shares her Ikat sample with the study group

Please stay tuned for more fun with the Westside Weavers and Spinners please do… and, consider weaving, spinning and dyeing with us… woo hoo!
