Weaving in Finland

While I was in Finland, I stayed with a textile artist who organizes the Kuusisto Art Manor every summer. I offered to do a talk about freestyle weaving while I was there. I took a small rigid heddle loom in my suitcase, and we invited visitors to the manor to give it a try. The long banner was woven by many people from both Vancouver and Finland.
