INTERMEDIATE HARNESS WEAVING

NOTE: The weaving class listed below is designed for those who have threaded a 4-harness loom, can follow a draft and weave independently.

 

DOUBLE WEAVE PICK UP PLACEMATS

Double weave is a great way to create multi-layered cloth.  Itís a versatile technique that can be used to create sharp designs, pockets, and double-wide cloth.  In this class, we will have pre-warped looms for two placemats in  5/2 Perle cotton.  Using black and white,  we'll explore two double-weave techniques: charted pick-up patterns and free-style pickup.  We are dressing the loom for you, no refunds or store credit for cancellations after March 2 unless we find a replacement for you.  By Carla Tilghman.

MONOCHROME DAMASK SCARF

Damask patterning is easier than you think! In this class, we'll warp the loom for a 10-inch-wide scarf with 5/2 Perle cotton. You will  use the same yarn for the weft. By using a skeleton shaft tie-up, we will explore using plain weave and twill structures to create subtle warp- and weft-faced patterns, both with charted patterns, and free-style pick-up.  Materials are not included in the class fee; you will need to purchase yarn at least 2 weeks before class and leave it at the store.  We are dressing the loom for you, no refunds or store credit for cancellations after April 6 unless we find a replacement for you.

DRAWING WITH OVERSHOT

Expand beyond weaving selvage to selvage and learn how to draw with overshot structures by constructing intuitive shapes or translating imagery.  This 2-day workshop will teach you how to create freeform overshot patterns.  On the first day of class, you will learn the fundamentals of and history behind the overshot structure, along with basic inlay techniques using a singular supplemental weft and plain weave background.  On the second day of class, you can explore the possibilities of using multiple wefts and tapestry techniques to create complex shapes of color and structure.  You will walk away with an inspiring sampler to continue explorations at home.  Bring Sport weight wools for the pattern weft, get experimental!  We are dressing the loom for you, no refunds or store credit for cancellations after May 18 unless we find a replacement for you.
