Loom Dancer

With much anticipation and excitement, the Loom Dancer Weaving Odyssey on Salt Spring is now in full swing. Today is Salt Spring Market day and so all are off for a day of visiting artists and farmers at the market.

We’ve done so much already, starting with a tour of the SAORI Salt Spring studio in the woods…


A tour of Ewetopia Farm and Elf Leatherworks


and then off to the Gulf Islands Spinning mill, lunch at Seaside Kitchen and a tour of the wineries, brewery, cheese farms and more. A full day!

I was busy in the afternoon, with Alan, setting up the studio at Harbour House Hotel…


Yesterday, the weaving began…


And continued through the day. We even had visitors try it out…


And the weaving continues Sunday and Monday as well – but here is a small selection of the many beautiful colours and textures so far…




Lots more weaving and photos to come. Stay tuned to my Facebook page and Instagram also…

Happy Weaving,

      Lynn – you will be amazed at their weaving. Today was a day off to visit the market and see some of the sights of the island and when I stopped by early this afternoon most of them were back at the weaving 🙂
