Philosophy

The philosophy of LaHave Weaving Studio is to encourage students to pursue their own artistic expression with a focus on learning basic art and design principles and time-honoured skills. We specialize in courses in weaving, textiles, and design.

Individual attention is important for learning because we are not all cut from the same cloth—each person learns in a different way. Also, everyone has unique personal goals--whether it be learning new techniques, alternative ways of designing, pursuing explorations in colour, new approaches of interpreting the world, telling a story, exploring more dimensional work, or using fibre for personal expression.

Classes are small (between 5 and 8 participants) and are conducted in a professional and positive learning environment by instructors who are both artists and teachers.
