We sponsor 3 workshops a year, 2 of the workshops are usually with nationally known instructors, and members get first chance to take these workshops.
The cost of the workshops are estimated prior to the workshop and a deposit is required when signing up to take a workshop with Weavers of Orlando.
The exact cost of the workshop is determined by the cost of travel for the instructor, teaching fees along with room rental and any other expenses encountered for the workshop. These costs are then divided among the participants in the workshop. Some of the instructors also require a materials fee that is separate fee from the cost of the workshop.

Weaving in a Parallel Universe by Linda Hartshorn
Explore a parallel universe of possibilities in weaving! Parallel threadings are incredibly versatile and can be used to weave a variety of structures including echo weave twills, four color doubleweave, and jin (polychrome turned taquete). Create vibrant colorways, echoes and iridescence by using two or more colors in the warp. Weave samples in a round robin, study drafts and learn how to create a parallel threading. Add the power of parallel threadings to your weaving repertoire.
Loom type: Portable floor or table loom, 8 or more shafts required, in good working order.
Loom will be pre-warped according to instructions. Two boat shuttles with bobbins, scissors, weft yarn, tape measure, Fray Check (a fabric glue for separating samples). Bring any items needed to mend broken warps. For notetaking and drafting bring pen, pencil, and paper.
