Jumpstart Vest with Daryl Lancaster

A baker’s dozen students from OWG, Tacoma Weavers Guild, and Seattle Weavers Guild gathered at the Griffin #2 fire station on Steamboat Island Road to learn how to transform handwoven fabric into clothing, taught by award-winning weaver, clothing maker, author. and renowned teacher Daryl Lancaster. ¬†Putting aside warping boards and looms for cutting boards and sewing machines, the class learned to happily cut into their prized handwoven yardage to make a vest that not only looks good, but fits well.

The class runs through today (April 15th).  Thursday, Daryl will teach a separate class on clothing finishing techniques, and will present the program at the regular guild meeting at North Olympia, on creating great garments from handwoven cloth.
