Summer Workshop: Hachures!

Learning to weave traditional French hachures is challenging and definitely not for beginners. We were very fortunate to have Mary Lane teach a five-day workshop this August for us.

Mary Lane, instructor, and students

She did a fantastic job of explaining and helping each weaver with her hachure project.  Everyone learned a lot.

In fact, we were concentrating so hard that  often it was quiet enough to hear a pin drop!  This is not a technique that can be mastered in five days, but Mary got everyone off to a solid start. 

We talked about our projects.

Learning in progress!
