We’ve had time to do our accounting and look through the workshop evaluations and the closing comment “An excellent experience” on one evaluation form seems to neatly sum up the first Cowichan Hand to Hand Fibre Arts Workshops Weekend. From the first session on Saturday morning to the last on Sunday afternoon people say they found the workshops inspiring and enjoyable, which is just as well given that some travelled from as far as Campbell River! The success of this weekend is more proof (if any was needed) that many talented and creative people live and share their skills here on Vancouver Island.

As a result we’re very pleased to say that there will be another Cowichan Hand to Hand Fibre Arts Workshops Weekend from 26–28 April 2019 at the same venue, the Cowichan Exhibition Park. Several attendees asked for full-day workshops (and we’d like to offer a wider range of topics) so we’ve decided the weekend should start early and added Friday. We’re also thinking of offering some evening sessions for people who can’t come during the day. Please let us know in the comments whether that would be useful for you.

We’re hoping to repeat some of the workshops next year (‘Spinning for Beginners’ was so popular this year that we had to add a session!) as well as introduce new topics. Let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see as a workshop – and we hope to see you next April at CowEx. We’ll let you know what we’re planning via the blog, too.

I just wish I had more photos to show you how much fun we had!
