“Beads, Fibres and Looms Weekend” - www.peyotedreams.ca

I am thrilled to present three exciting classes in conjunction with Pin-It Canada. Located at picturesque Fanshawe College, each class will involve working on a loom - either with beads or fibre - or both!

  • The basics of beading on a loom
  • Tapestry weaving on a Beading Loom
  • Tapestry weaving for Beginners

What are the Retreats at Pin it Canada? 

The concept of Pin-it Canada is to host as many artists and crafters as possible in one location.  There are numerous retreats going on under the Pin it Canada show.  These retreats allow the participants to spend time creating in their art of choice.  From painting, mixed media, jewelry, scrapbooking, fibre arts and many more, participants can interact with other creative groups, while sharing knowledge and inspiring one another. Retreat attendees can also spend time at the Pin it Canada Trade Show.  Here they will learn about other art forms, be given the opportunity to take workshops, and network with other students, teachers, and exhibitors.  The retreats are organized by the retreat groups themselves. For more information, please check out the links on the websiteType your paragraph here.

These are just a few of the Retreats that will be running at Pin-it 2019. ​Check back often - more to come!
