Welcome to LaHave Weaving Studio!

Welcome to LaHave Weaving Studio situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.  Lesley Armstrong, weaver and teacher, is pleased to offer weaving, textile, and design workshops in a renovated century-old building overlooking Lunenburg Harbour. This summer I am delighted that my former teacher, Warren Seelig, who is a Visiting Distinguished Professor at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, will be teaching a 5-day workshop at the studio, "Thinking Textiles/Constructed Surfaces".  Check out our 2019 Schedule.

Another great season has been planned and we are offering a variety of introductory and intermediate-level textile workshops--from 2-evenings to 5-day workshops--as well as more advanced instruction on an individual basis or specific workshops for groups.  During the summer of 2019 workshop topics will include a variety of weaving workshops with Lesley Armstrong such as Nature as Inspiration for Woven Design and Intro/Refresher to Weaving, Designing Geometrics with Nancy Price, Constructed Surfaces with Warren Seelig, learning how to make netting and how to make a ditty bag with Brooke Gray, and the 4-day Textile Discoveries tour where we'll make a willow basket with Heather Sanft, visit a rural museum to examine their textile collection, create our own story on cloth with Kate Delmage, and get dirty with multi-media artist Doug Guildford.

Owner Lesley Armstrong is an experienced weaver who runs a weaving business Armstrong Textiles and has taught for over three decades in the Textiles/Fashion area of NSCAD U.

Please check out the workshop descriptions and don't hesitate to contact Lesley for more information or if you have questions call 902-220-5430.  Join us this summer in a welcoming and well-equipped workshop environment in a rustic historic building belonging to Lunenburg Foundry, only minutes away from the downtown area and public wharves.  At the same time, enjoy the tastes and textures of the historic town of Lunenburg as well as the beaches and scenery along the South Shore of Nova Scotia.

Please join us for the Textile Conversations, lectures & hands-on events that are free and open to the public, during the summer of 2019 at the Studio.
