Handcrafted fashion and handcrafted work has definitely a new meaning today since everything is currently "Made in China", right?
This was definitely a must-go for those who believe in creating art with your own hands!
We attended a super cool weaving class at Space98 in Williamsburg, with the super talented Ahna, Founder of Prissage Studio!
There was a space sectioned off, within the store, dedicated to the workshop. Urban Outfitters provided the refreshments, which were great!
In the workshop we were provided (to keep!) a handmade wooden loom, tools to weave with (2 shuttle sticks, a weaving sword, tapestry needle), yarn to finish your tapestry and instruction.
It was a 3 hours long course since weaving is a very intensive process, so we weren't able to finish our first wall hanging (tapestry) in class, but we were taught how to finish and continue at home. Ours is how done!
We really enjoyed this unique and fun day with Prissage Studio!
Thank you dear Heidi Lee for the great pictures!
