Weave Your Own Metis Sash

On-line Edition, open registration. Next monthly Zoom meetings Jan 11 & February 15, 2021

This workshop includes a series of videos to lead you through the design, warping, & weaving processes, Zoom video meetings with the instructor & your very own loom & supply kit.

Become a part of the “I Made My Own Sash” club with this special on-line edition of the Metis Sash Loom Weaving workshop.

Create your custom sayncheur flayshii (Metis sash), emblem of the Metis people, on an artisan hand loom. This is a wonderful cultural hobby to keep you entertained, with a “follow along at your own pace” vibe.

Along with teachings about the history and meaning of the “arrow-belt”, we provide looms, yarn and all supplies to get you started via Canada Post.

In a series of videos, we will begin with the basics and work our way up to creating your personalized version of the famous red river sash, based on L’Assomption sashes worn by Red River traders in the 1800’s, in your choice of colors.

We’ll have a Zoom video meeting to begin with questions & teachings, as well as a video meeting partway through to show off our handiwork. Warping, threading and troubleshooting are an important part of this beginner-level workshop. All skill levels are welcome to join us – we will teach you everything you need to know to make your own custom sash!
