Doubleweave - The In’s and Out’s on 4 Shafts - May 21 and 22
Spend two intensive days learning about Double Weave, a structure that allows you to create textiles that look far more complex than they are.
Students will learn how to weave two separate layers of cloth at the same time, cloth that is joined on one or more selvedges to create tubes, double width and more, interchanging layers to get interesting color effects and, time permitting, imagery created using double weave pick up techniques.
Once enrolled, students will receive instructions for winding their warp, threading their loom and all that is needed to come prepared to weave.
You will need a 4-harness loom that can be transported to class, already warped. (if you do not have a portable loom, please contact us about renting one of ours and scheduling time to set up the loom in advance.)
Each student will leave with a number of samples that can be used as reference for further projects and study.
