Introduction to Weaving
This is a four-day course spread over two weekends in February/March 2020. The first weekend will be spent learning the basics and planning a project. The second weekend is all about your project! You will dress the loom and weave a piece to your own design. You will also learn some techniques for finishing your woven cloth.
A ‘taster day’ is a one-day workshop which includes hands-on experience of all the processes involved in weaving your own cloth. You will create a woven sampler to take away with you at the end. All the weaving is done on four-shaft table looms which are prepared in advance and ready to use.
Weaving Weekend: Parallel Threadings
This approach to threading multiple warp layers is the basis of several different weave structures, and it combines very well with network drafting to create multi-layered curving designs. We’ll create original designs and explore many possibilities.
