We will include both 4 and 8 harness options for each structure. This class gives a good foundation for the Great Plains on- loom class that follows and we will spend some time researching materials and writing out plans for warps.      

            Please bring graph paper, colored pencils and a good eraser. Feel free to bring your laptop with a weaving program if you prefer.  ( Pixeloom and  Fiberworks can be downloaded for free and are great for practicing though you are not able to print or save unless you purchase the program)

Oct 24,31, Nov 7,14,21,28, 2017

Level: Intermediate 


            The most basic of the weave structures can create the most elegant and exciting fabrics. In this round robin class, learn to play with sett to change from gauze to felt, add supplementary warp for deflected effects, mix fibers for ruffles and ridges, and see what magic lies in the twist of the yarns, Create layers and transparencies with double plain and deflected double cloth and more.

             The focus is on materials and the visualization of the structure. Weave, dye, experiment and share. Students must know how to set up a loom and read a draft.   Warps will be made in advance. We will use both 4 and 8 harness looms.


Beginner Drafting

Fridays   November 3,10,17, Dec 1, 2017

10-12:30 pm 


Level: advanced beginners 

Every weaver needs to understand how to read a draft and how to change a draft to suit  their project. In this workshop, learn about the four parts of a draft and how each part affects the final picture of the weave (drawdown).  We will cover the basic weaves – plain weave and twills and their variations.  I will use a computer weaving program and projector to show the drafting procedure as students follow along on graph paper. No experience necessary as we will start with the very basics to build our patterns. Please bring graph paper, small ruler, several colored pencils and a good eraser.
